Just picked raspberries and blueberries

Pups and I just picked $30 worth of blueberries and red/gold raspberries yesterday at an area farm. Any suggestions for what to do with them besides "the usual"? (I have a pastry dough chilling in the fridge for a lattice top blueberry pie) As usual...TIA!!!!!

  1. The Blueberry Buttermilk Tart at Epicurious is delicious.

    I'm thinking raspberry panna cotta with some Chambord with extra raspberries macerated in it and served over the top

    1. Recipe calls for 3 (1/2 dry pint) baskets of fresh raspberries. (Use caution for the pups though).

        This sounds outrageous...what do I do about the weight I'm about to incur with consuming these desserts...YUM!!!

      2. Crush them up a little bit so you've got plenty of juice but still some whole berries as well, pour in ice cube trays and freeze. These are wonderful all times of years in lemonade, limeade, cocktails, smoothies, even just club soda or regular coke. Or you can just pop a whole one in your mouth for a mini popsicle! If you save some for winter you'll have a nice reminder of fresh summer fruit, too.

        1. I would love to pick some gold raspberries. I was wondering what farm you picked the raspberries at? Thanks!

          1. you already make your own smoothies? they don't have to be calorie-packing sweet junk...blueberries with a ripe banana, maybe some o.j. to sweeten IF NEEDED...0% yogurt or kefir...some ground flax meal or natural peanut if are GOOD to go in the a.m.!!! Wish I knew of some savory blueberry dishes...betcha there are some though!
