This week’s share includes a container of raspberries. As with the blueberries included in our Week 2 share box, these are not locally grown, but again we thought it would be a great opportunity to share them with you. Our suppliers had a large supply of these beautiful berries and we hated to see them go to waste.
Raspberries are high in vitamins A and C and provide generous amounts of potassium and calcium.  Delicious alone, they are also an excellent addition to fruit salads or smoothies. Keep in mind that raspberries have a rather short shelf life, so store in the refrigerator for no more than 1-2 days. Wash just before ready to use. Avoid washing them under cold running water, as they bruise easily. The best way to wash them is to place the berries in a large colander and gently dip it into a larger bowl of cool water. Swish the berries around in the water, drain, and spread carefully on a cloth or paper towel to dry. Now they’re ready to use in your favorite recipes!
