Raspberries Are a Tasty Treat

Raspberries Are a Tasty Treat

Summer is a great time to enjoy raspberries. Though red raspberries are the most common, there are many color varietyies such as black, purple, orange, yellow and white. Well-known hybrids such as loganberries and boysenberries also belong to the raspberry clan.



Raspberries contain an antioxidant that can help prevent and fight several cancers. One cup of raspberries serves up 33% of dietary fiber, 51% of vitamin C, 61% of manganese and is a good source of potassium, folate and magnesium.

To serve the goodness of raspberries, they can be frozen. Wash them gently while in a colander and then pat off excess moisture. Place single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze for one to two hours. Then place raspberries in a freezer bag or container and enjoy this winter.
