Raspberry Recipes

Freshly prepared and sugared raspberries are excellent when served alone or with cream. The fruit can also be used to make delicious jams, jellies, pies, and other desserts. Besides their excellent flavour, raspberries are a nutritious food, contributing vitamins A and C and various minerals to the diet as well as a natural substance called ellagic acid, which is an anti-carcinogenic (cancer-preventing) compound.
