Raspberries are sweet with a subtly tart undertone, they have a melt-in-your-mouth texture, and they are very good for you. Raspberries rank near the top of all fruits for antioxidants and are a great source of vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. Add some delicious raspberries to your next smoothie or try our raspberry tart recipe.

Selecting Raspberries

Raspberries are highly perishable; they should only be purchased one or two days prior to use. Choose berries that are firm, plump and deep in color. Avoid those that are soft, mushy or moldy. Make sure that the berries are not packed too tightly in their container, as this may cause them to become crushed and damaged. Make sure the container has no signs of stains or moisture.

Care & Handling

Raspberries will keep fresh in the refrigerator for one or two days. Make sure not to leave berries at room temperature or exposed to sunlight for too long, as this will cause them to spoil. When you are ready to use your berries, give them a gentle rinse.

You can easily freeze berries – just wash, pop them into a ziplock bag, and remove as much air as possible. The frozen berries will keep for many months.
