Raspberries are an excellent fruit for breakfast dishes and dessert items, particularly because of their tart yet sweet flavor. Whether you want to use then to make jam for warm English muffins or as a fresh topping on frozen yogurt, raspberries have proven over and over that they are a versatile and simple fruit. The only tricky thing with raspberries is that they perish quickly, so you’ll want to use them right away. Raspberries are also very delicate, so use light water pressure when rinsing them and pat dry.

Not only are raspberries delicious, but they are a great source of vitamin c, manganese, riboflavin, and the antioxidant ellagic acid, which appears to have some anti-cancer properties. Raspberries are usually in-season around mid-summer, so eat up while they’re ripe!
