As I took some raspberries out of the freezer to package them up today, I was struck by the beauty of the berries themselves.
As you can see, this tray full happened to be a mix of red and yellow raspberries which I think made it especially attractive. Just look at what beauty nature provides for us with only a bit of work on our part.
The berries sure are a nice, large size. Can you see the quarter I put in there for size comparison?
Here's something I'd like your input on. I'm planning on canning a bunch of frozen raspberries later on when I have the time. Can I do that? I've canned a lot of raspberries in my day, but I've always done it with fresh berries. Papa Pea loves canned ones . . . mostly because he thinks the juice tastes like wine! Plus, the canned raspberries (I do them in a light syrup) are wonderful over ice cream, pudding or yogurt so I really would like to use some frozen ones for canning. I'd appreciate you sharing any experience you've had canning raspberries that have been frozen first.
Now . . . I'm out to pick blueberries!
