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.
I’ve used frozen rasperries in my Berrylicious Shake and the dessert I made last night, Raspberry and Blackberry Pavlova but I forgot the Whipped Cream (dairy free too).
What about you? What are you making with raspberries? Use Mr. Linky to share. Please add a link to this post to the recipe post you share so we complete the circle of link love. Make sure to share the link right to your recipe, not just your blog. If you don’t have a blog leave a message and share what you are making.
Also, this is the last call for Homemade Hamburger Helper recipes and photos. Can’t wait to share with you what has been submitted already. Look for that next week sometime.
Just when I think I am top of things, I see I'm behind on the Hamburger Helper submission. Gotta find my recipe!
Annnnyway … today I linked up a smoothie recipe that I tweaked until I really liked it last night. It's fun to be learning here once again for FFF. I've never even heard of golden raspberries. I must be living under a bush … a red raspberry bush, that is. 😉
Shirley- I LOVE your smoothies!
That looks delicious, and I love raspberries. I just don't have any recipes! It's been so long since I made hamburger helper, I don't know what qualifies. Shirley suggested this cream sauce recipe (that I added hamburger to). Let me know if it works and you want an email copy. http://www.glutenfreehomemaker.com/2010/06/dairy-…
Linda- Looks like an entry to me. Send me your photo and I'll add it to the post this week.
This is one of my oldest recipes…hence the really bad photo! But the cheesecake tastes absolutely amazing! (Not dairy-free though)
Iris- I love cheesecake. Thanks for sharing this.
Thanks for the friday foodie fix; I'd been meaning to post my raspberry jam recipe and this was great inspiration to actually do it 😉
Breanna- Yeah, I love raspberry jam.
Sorry I'm a little late to the party. Been traveling. I almost always use the usual red raspberries. But my son LOVES the golden raspberries, so I sometimes throw them into my fruit salad. It gives a nice color variation.
Heather- How cool that your son even knows there are different raspberries and he has an opinion.
