In my mind, there’s no fruit that says “summer” quite like raspberries. I have fond summer memories of taking the little fishing boat across the lake at our cabin in Minnesota to go raspberry picking on Comet Island. Our hands would get dyed red as we’d pick and eat for hours under the hot sun. Then we’d jump in the lake to rinse it all off.
I’m sure many people have similar memories since raspberries are one of the most widely grown crops worldwide. It’s for that reason I’m looking forward to seeing what great recipes everyone links up this month. They’re sure to be chock full of personal, sunny, summertime stories, in addition to being great tasting.
Head on down to your local farmers market, fruit stand, or grocery store, buy some raspberries, and reminisce about summers past with us by linking up your recipe under the JULY tab. We’ve also got some great link parties from years past featuring Zucchini, Blueberries and Cherries so check those out while you’re at it! Find some inspiration, or share your recipes and stories with us.
