Is there anything better than the sweet, tart, juicy bite of fresh raspberries straight from the garden?? I don't think so! Raspberries are one of my favorite fruits. I love stocking up on them when they are in season and putting them everywhere! I put them in yogurt, pancakes, salads, and with main dishes (my favorite is pork tenderloin with raspberry sauce like this RECIPE, but instead of preserves I use 1/4-1/3 cup smashed raspberries). I also include them on ice cream, in oatmeal, in smoothies, and anything else I can dream up. I have been finding them at farmer's markets already and have started searching new recipes and creating my own! I LOVE summer :) Here are some tips for raspberries....
Raspberries provide an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, manganese, flavonoids, and ellagic acid. They also offer a very good source of vitamin B2 and a good source of other B vitamins, such as niacin, folic acid, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Raspberries are low in calories and are nutrient-dense.
What is your favorite way to eat raspberries? Any amazing combinations I can try?
