raspberries on sale, what to do
Safeway has 3 6 ounce boxes for $5 again on Friday. Last week they were excellent, had with a little vanilla ice cream. How else would you serve them?
I live in a big berry growing area so I use them in everything! The standards are pies and turnovers but For non dessert ideas:
I love them in green salads with cheese and nuts. I like raspberry infused vodka or gin, and make raspberry vinaigrette. I also make raspberry mint drinks and cocktails.
Of course, raspberry purée makes any dessert better :)
It's hard to better them with cream or ice cream.
For me, the best won't be available until late summer/early autumn, but early fruits will find their way into summer pudding
There was a Chocolate Raspberry cake recipe on line. It looked divine. I printed off the recipe. I wish I could remember what site it was on. We've got raspberrys on sale and I'm going to give it a try in the next few days so if I like it, it will be something that I'll take to a party 4th of July weekend.
