The state of Washington is known for apples. However, raspberries are also prolific. Just yesterday I picked a bowl full of berries and today I picked another bowl. As I picked, it seemed like the raspberries got ripe right before my eyes. Several people in my neighborhood grow raspberries. So we always have plenty to pick and plenty to share.
Yesterday I made scones with raspberries and chocolate chips mixed into the batter. Last night we tossed berries into our green salad. This morning we topped our oatmeal with raspberries. I even froze a few for someone else.
Raspberries are filled with vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium, and fiber. A treat that's healthy and tastes good!
Even though it’s the first day of autumn, we’ll enjoy a sweet harvest for a few more weeks.
