Why You’ll Love Raspberries
Floral scented and sweet as honey — with tart undertones — these bite-sized berries practically melt in your mouth. At their peak from May to September, raspberries are ripe with sunny flavor, and bursting with antioxidants, vitamins C and K, and fiber.

How to Tell if Raspberries are Fresh
Look for plump, vibrant-hued berries, avoiding any containers full of crushed or sticky fruits. While ruby red-colored berries are the most common, some farmers’ markets also offer pink, black, purple and golden yellow raspberries.

How & Where to Store Raspberries
Refrigerate single layers of unwashed raspberries in shallow, loosely covered dishes. Or, freeze and enjoy year-round: Gently rinse, drain and arrange on a baking sheet. Freeze overnight, then transfer to a freezer bag. A squeeze of lemon juice will help preserve their bright coloring.

How to Pair Raspberries
Try a refreshing salad of mixed greens, raspberries, avocado and mango. Instead of candy, satisfy your sweet tooth by stuffing the fruits with mini chocolate chips. And for a light and luscious breakfast, brunch or dessert dish, top peach halves with raspberries and honey-vanilla ricotta.
