Vibrant in colour, raspberries are bursting with a unique blend of sweet and tart

The raspberry, a quintessentially versatile berry

Raspberries are tart berries that burst when you bite into them with an almost citrus-like flavour but sweeter.

Along with the strawberry the raspberry is part of the rose family and is now cultivated and enjoyed all over the world. With a history of medicinal properties, raspberries were once said to carry kindness through the body but we now know that they are high in Vitamin C, potassium, antioxidants and dietary fibre as well as tasting divine.

These sweet, plump and delicately fragrant fruit are enjoyed in traditional baking, contemporary cooking and as snacks.

When buying raspberries, look for deep, red berries. Raspberries may vary in size, some being more conical than others, but they should all be consistent and uniform with no damaged druplets or bleed. Raspberries are ready ripened when you buy them.

How to keep your Raspberries fresh

Store raspberries in the fridge as soon as possible after purchase. Keep the punnet upright and handle carefully to avoid bruising.

It is important that raspberries are brought to room temperature before eating; this brings out the fullest flavours in the fruit.

Always wash your raspberries before you eat them. The best way to do this is to carefully place them into a colander, rinse under cold water and gently pat dry with kitchen towel
