Stuffed raspberries--clever presentation!

I saw blueberry stuffed raspberries (à la olives) on "Chopped" yesterday while flipping channels--then googled and found this today.

Wouldn't the blueberry ones make a beautiful appearance in a sparkling adult beverage?

Ooh, chips, chips! Even betta! I wanna remember this very cool idea when it's pickin' time.

And if "chips, chips" also makes you think of this, well, it's wondaful--good luck, my baby!

  1. My OCD would have to kick in real hard for me to want to stuff a raspberry - but I completely agree that it would indeed, be lovely.

      OCD? Really? Aw, pfft--go stuff a raspberry! ;P

      1. re: kattyeyes

        I'm busy stuffing raisins with cooked peas at the moment, but I'll take it under advisement. : )

    2. Chips? You mean stuffing the raspberry with chocolate chips?

      I saw that episode of chopped and they were pretty. What wouldn't look as good but would be tastier is ganache stuffed raspberries. I'm sorta biased because I am not that enamored with blueberries. I don't dislike them but thay aren't my favorite.

      If you are primarily wanting pretty, glazing them with heated apricot jam so they are shiny would be even prettier.

        Yeah, further down on the link is a pretty shot of raspberries stuffed with chocolate and white chocolate chips.

        Oooh, ganache--with you there. And glazed is a nice idea, too. Made me think of a cherry almond cake I made a coupla summers ago--topping cherry halves with blueberries would be visually interesting...and then maybe brushed with heated apricot jam for extra shine. I'm keeping this all on file in my head. Thank you!

          Would make a gorgeous fruit tart wouldn't it?

          1. re: Hank Hanover

            Mm-hmm!

            1. re: Hank Hanover

              That's brilliant. Maybe a Pavlova?

            2. re: kattyeyes

              while i love raspberries with chocolate, most chips in the supermarket are barely even chocolate anymore. they are labeled "morsels."

              if i had a bunch of little kids i'd have them stuffing raspberries with blueberries all day! lol.

              1. re: hotoynoodle

                yeah, the chip-stuffed ones don't appeal to me at all. Even with good quality chips, the textures are still wrong.

                At Alinea, i had a raspberry filled w/ white wine gel.

                1. re: danna

                  The Alinea cookbook also has a recipe that included raspberries filled with a red pepper gel.

                  It may sound a little weird, but I've actually paired raspberry with red bell pepper before and it worked really well (pizza with lamb sausage, feta, red onion, red bell pepper, kalamata olives, fresh mint and raspberries)

                  1. re: Firenzilla

                    wow. genius combo. I wish I could taste it.

          2. Wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it -- it IS April 1st!

            1. Pastry cream and lemon curd are other good fillings, kind of inside-out tarts

              1. There have been times where I've pipped Nutella into rasberries, dunked them in some ganache to coat, then stick a tiny little mint leaf into the top before it sets.

                TEDIOUS! ...but it kills time...

                  Now that sounds delicious.

                2. You could take some of those stuffed raspberries and put them in a bowl with a layer of creme anglaise. A piece of pound cake under the sauce would make it more substantial but still beautiful.

                  Of course, you could always decorate a cake with them.

                  1. Y'know, as much as I love my guests, and as much as I love to cook, I don't love either of them enough to stuff raspberries.

                    Nice idea, but gads.

                      That is why I am using the term... you. You could do this with em... You could do that with em....

                    2. Stuff a blueberry into a raspberry, then cut a large strawberry in half, hollow out both sides, fit the stuffed raspberry inside both halves and then while holding the two halves closed, dip in chocolate and let set up. The "turducken" of fruit. :)

                        Chocolate covered strasbluerry?

                        1. re: ttoommyy

                          HA HA HA, the "turducken" of fruit! Love it--so funny! Who will be the first to try it?!

                            "Who will be the first to try it?!"

                            What do you mean??? We make these every year at Easter! ;}

                            1. re: ttoommyy

                              The big strawberries are almost hollow enough naturally to do this! (ttoommyy, you slay me)

                          2. re: ttoommyy

                            If you are going for the Turducken effect, Wrap the whole thing in sweetened cream cheese and either roll it in chopped pistachios or coconut or even one on top and one on bottom. You could dip them in chocolate. Put them on lollypop sticks and have something the size of an extra large hen's egg...on a stick. It would be good and memorable and a big hassle but when has that stopped this crowd?

                            I think this is another incident when we have gotten carried away with a perfectly good idea.

                            1. re: Hank Hanover

                              LOLOL...then dip it in edible gold and sell it for one million dollars! ;)

                              1. re: kattyeyes

                                No just use it as a dare or an initiation. Bet you can't eat even one?

                          3. Yes, stuffed raspberries with blue berry. Its really great idea. I prepared it for my children. They enjoyed a lot.
