Oh yes ! YUM ! I just love them. I don't buy them very often. I mainly buy them around December when we use them for pavlovas and other desserts. I am very lucky in that the area where we live produces some of the best berries, so we can go to the farm gate and buy them directly from the farmer. In fact, Woolworths probably get their fruit from here and jack up the price for consumers. The peak time for berries is December and January, so that's when I buy them.
I absolutely love both! I buy them as often as I can find them fresh. Not only are they incredibly delicious but are packed with health benefits. From being rich in Vitamin C to fighting diseases such as cancer and heart problems.
I adore them either fresh with yogurt or pancakes in the morning, or in some of my favourite desserts including muffins, cheesecakes, pies, and various others.
Yes I absolutely LOVE these and all berries.I can NOT however,tolerate the exorbitant prices of fresh ones though! We grew raspberries each year when I was living in Victoria and the plants are so easy to to get a great crop from!As for the blackberries,we would just go up the road a little way and there were so many growing wild,that we could fill buckets with them to take home for making into Pies,Jams, and Crumbles! Looking back on those wonderful times,I know how very spoilt I was,though at the time,it was just a 'given' that summer meant berries!! And we never paid for ANY of them! Here in Nth Qld,I find that Mulberries grow extremely well. The trees are huge if we allow then to grow freely! I have now been given a WHITE Mulberry tree which is amazing! The fruits are exactly the same in flavour as the coloured ones,but of course they do not stain at all. I must admit that I love fresh berries more than frozen ones,but I just hate the price!!
I'm so over blackberries. When younger and up until my 40's we used to pick them wild. We made jams and used to eat them direct from the bushes so I've more than had my fill of them. As for raspberries, I too find them tart so rarely buy them. Having said that, I've been growing a raspberry bush for over a year now waiting for it to eventually fruit so I can use them for cooking.
Yes plus strawberries, blueberries and Mulberries.
I love to mix raspberries with strawberries and slice the strawberries to make the fruits all the approx. size.
If I have a dry mouth will open the fridge and take a few berries to eat and quench my thirst.
As soon as I run out of them will check to see if they are still a good price and buy more.
I now have the frozen mixed berries in my freezer! So 1 day when I'm not having cereal for breakfast, I'll have the frozen fruits, yogurt & banana after my dinner.
I'll also sprinkle over chai seeds, almond, hazelnut & almond meal as well! And how about caramel sauce over the top of all that??? Sorry, just an idea I had hmmai.
Hmmcl, I now also have waffles with mixed (unfrozen) berries, vanilla ice-cream & maple syrup! Most of the time at a local cafe with a friend, while she's eating eggs & white toast, but I now make it at home, on special occasions as well for 1/2 the price!
Yes I do - I buy them, other berries, grapes and melon at least twice a week to make a big bowl of fruit salad which I dip into every day. I particularly love raspberries. I'm not too keen on blueberries for the same reason as Rice.
Yes, I love them both, but I only buy raspberries when they're NOT $7/8 a packet!!! I will only pay $3/4 & I check them out very carefully, (without opening the plastic container of cause.) The blackberries I pick, when in season, close to were I live.
