I’ve posted previously about my love for strawberries, but my second favorite berry and berry flavor, has got to be raspberry. A bowl of fresh and tangy, sweet, refreshing, juicy raspberries- is there anything better?
Turns out, there’s a large number of raspberry recipes online- from raspberry sherbet, to raspberry pie, to this ridiculously easy-to-assemble Raspberry Chocolate Torte (which I’ve tried, and which is awesome, by the way). There’s even raspberry vinaigrette, which, I’m sorry, looks so much like a pitcher of delicious raspberry juice in the photo, I want to down a glass right now.
Still, the best way I like my raspberries is fresh and plain. No sugar, no cream, just a bowl of plain deliciousness, thank you very much. I like to wash them quickly in very cold water, and serve them immediately. They’re packed full of good things like antioxidants, vitamins b and c, and lots of fiber (which means I can enjoy them without breaking my low-carb diet). It’s foods like these, perfect from nature, that really make me smile.
