berries, berries and more berries,
Fruit is at its peak of ripeness, this means that the berries you bought when they first arrived at the market a month or two ago could last several days. Now, however they are too juicy to last as long. Peak season berries contain a lot of moisture, its very worst enemy because it creates mold. I find the only way to avoid losing berries to mold is to purchase less more often. Or, you could try this method.
Remember those amazing golden raspberries I posted a while back? Well, there is a new kid in town, black raspberries. I ate an entire pint looking for the perfect description, I need another pint.
Although some look as if they have mold, they do not. It’s the natural fuzz of the fruit. They taste like candy, but not super sweet. The nutritional value of these fruits is off the charts, trust me. The season of golden and black raspberries is a bit shorter than that of the red variety. If you’re lucky to find them, buy them, eat them, freeze them, enjoy them.
After you read this excellent article on the nutritional benefits of raspberries you’ll not only put them on your grocery list but most likely they’ll be organic.
Boysenberries, red raspberries, golden raspberries and blackberries are available and will be for some time. This gold raspberries jam looks delicious. On a hot summer day a scoop of golden raspberry and white peach sorbet will certainly cool you off.
