|Yes, that is an entire bucket of raspberries! DELICIOUS!|
We found a few critters along the way.... glad I didn't stick my hand in there too quickly.
And the bees, oh the bees are crazy! I HATE bees and I just have to grin and bear it.
Right when I got home, I went straight into the kitchen, washing and preserving some of my raspberry treasures. Plus, I made a fun Raspberry Creme Coffee Cake, a Raspberry & Nutella Pizza, this fresh Raspberry Sauce (below) served over vanilla ice cream and a few other recipes that will be hitting my blog very soon. I also froze some raspberries, I wanted to keep them at thee most freshest state and froze them as soon as I got home. Here is my freezer method.
Freezing Fresh Raspberries
Wash and pat dry raspberries, lay them all out on a cookie sheet to freeze. Place cookie sheet into freezer over night. Remove cookie sheet from the freezer and then place the raspberries into a zip lock bag. This allows the raspberries to freeze individually and therefore when you need a few raspberries for a recipe you do not have to use the entire bag, you just take what you need.
