next time you have seeded cherrys, crack the pit and eat the seed.  it is very almond like.  that being said, they do contain cyanogenic compounds and can be poisonous in large amounts.

Jimmy K:
Actually, almonds grow in a fruit that looks identical to peaches.

My understanding is that it is the drying process, which I assume is used for Maheb, is what deactivates the cyanide in cherry pits, similar to deactivation of prussic acid in crushed choke cherry seeds when making pemmican.  Can anyone confirm that?
