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

        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?

              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)

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

          1. 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...
