Those sweet summer raspberries are a nutrition powerhouse


Those sweet summer raspberries are a nutrition powerhouse
Billings Gazette

Delicious raspberries have been ripening in my garden for the past couple of weeks, and I have been busy trying to keep up with getting them picked and taken care of.My two young grandchildren are always excited to see them ripening so they can have fun picking and eating them as well. The raspberries that are purchased in the grocery stores never have the rich flavor of those that are home-grown.Enjoy those raspberries in desserts, in many different quick breads, in salads, in a smoothie or tossed in with your morning cereal or yogurt. Not only do the raspberries taste great but they are also a nutrition powerhouse. They are low in calories and fats, but a rich source of fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin C.Since the raspberries have a delicate texture, plan to consume or preserve the raspberries within a couple of days after picking.
