not too much. The stones of some of them are toxic. But you might try growing trees.

This recipe actually uses cherry pits as well as cherries to infuse the base for frozen yogurt -- pretty cool! https://food52.com/recipes...

Wish I had a recipe to offer, but a good friend made OUTSTANDING bitters from cherry pits last year. Really wonderful.

Be extremely careful,
Many stone fruit have cyanide and other poison in them , it change by variety , kernel is used all over Europe , and Middle east if you really want to know coming from a family which used to make alcohol from them , the old timer used to feed the chicken and Dog , if they were still standing 2 days later they would use them...
Many people do use them , they have medicinal properties , I would not touch them with a 10 foot pole , I have seen first hand what a man look like after a drinking binge on them , unable to do anything productive.
