It’s Friday — time for What To Make With What’s On Sale! This week, fresh Driscoll raspberries are $1.25/6 oz. at King Soopers, and at Safeway, Driscoll raspberries are buy one get one free ($2.00 each when you buy two.)
Here are some tasty ideas for using those fresh raspberries (besides eating them by the handful as my kids like to do!) :)
Freeze them! Raspberries are easy to freeze: simply rinse, gently pat dry, and place in freezer bags or freezer-safe storage containers. If you want to avoid having frozen clumps of raspberries, spread the fresh berries on a cookie sheet in a single layer and freeze for an hour before transferring the berries to freezer bags.
Frozen raspberries are great for adding to a quick bread recipe or a smoothie, or served alone as a sweet snack!
Make raspberry syrup or sauce to top pancakes, waffles, yogurt, or ice cream! This recipe for raspberry sauce calls for frozen raspberries, but fresh work just as well.
Try this 5-star recipe for raspberry jam. Only two ingredients are needed: raspberries and sugar! This jam can be stored in the fridge for a couple of weeks if you’re not into canning.
Make your own raspberry vinaigrette dressing! This recipe calls for pressing fresh raspberries through a sieve, but it’s an unnecessary step, in my opinion. Simply throw all the ingredients in a blender — the end result is just as good!
Put them in a dessert! Here are five delicious raspberry dessert recipes to try:
- Ina Garten’s Raspberry Cheesecake
- Raspberry Sorbet or Granita
- Brown Eyed Baker’s Raspberry Streusel Bars
- The Pioneer Woman’s Individual Raspberry Cobblers
- Irresistible Raspberry Buttermilk Dumplings
