Raspberries are a beautiful fruit that you can find all year round in the supermarkets. They produce an incredible fragrance and flavour that has us all thinking of warm summer evenings. When it comes to using these delicious berries out of their normal growing season you will find that their flavour is not as strong. This goes for using any fruit outside of the season that they usually grow in and is why Flavouring Manufacturers like Stringer Flavour make flavourings that we can use to enhance the natural taste of fruit.
In the morning, add a few cereals, pop some in your porridge or make a fresh fruit smoothie with raspberries as one of the star ingredients to start the day off in the best way possible. A perfect way to get the freshest possible fruit is to grow your own raspberries and the plants will produce a lot of fruit.
There are so many ways to add raspberries to your baking process. If you’re a fan of brownies, why not try to add a couple of them before baking, folding them into the batter? With soft, melting raspberries in the middle, a squidgy dark chocolate brownie is a thing of beauty!
Making your own jam is another way to help preserve the raspberry flavour during the year. Jam can seem a little fiddly if you’ve never done it before but it can actually be really simple and leaves you feeling like a domestic god or goddess!
