I have always been fascinated by berries. Their color , names everything is fascinating. Like there is no straw in strawberry and though black berries and raspberries look the same ( except for the color) , why dont we call black berries , black raspberries ?? Oops, I forgot , there are black raspberries! Then there are the exotic ones from Brazil , Acai and Gooji , here the name itself is exotic.
Though I’m not much worried about the nutritional side of them, but yes the berries do have great anti oxidant properties. Normally, I make a smoothie, cut and mix â€˜em in my cereal, cook them or just use them in a fondue. However, the most I have gone is to use raspberries in a tiramisu. The recipe was from Meeta’s Blog.
With berries running in my mind, I decided to host this fruit party with recipes made of raspberries!! All of you are invited!! Come Join the party and make this an event to remember!!!
