Today’s Secret Ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is raspberries. Raspberries come in three main varieties- black, golden and red. I’m only used red raspberries in dishes but have seen the golden ones at the market. These little berries contain a fair amount of iron, potassium and vitamins A and C and are packed with antioxidants. They are fragile and should be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days in a moisture proof container and in a single layer. Some folks like to add raspberries to their lemonade. I think that sounds great. Raspberries are said to be great simply served with a little whipped cream.
But don’t let that stop you from cooking with them. You might want to try Stephanie O’Dea’s Turkey with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce Crockpot Recipe. She is the author of the blog A Year of Slow Cooking and the cookbook Make it Fast, Cook it Slow.
