Blog #74: Raspberries are so fresh and last about 5 days sometimes longer in your fridge. Many people don’t know what to make with raspberries. Make some raspberry sauce with only 3 ingredients! Another tasty treat is to stuff each raspberry with a chocolate chip! Sweet but with a fresh taste to it.
We’ve been eating lots of raspberries stuffed with chocolate chips in my home. I wanted to try something new with raspberries. I watch all the Baking Championship shows on the Food Network channel. The Spring Baking Championship this season had a lot of recipes that were spring inspired. One of the bakers made a few raspberry desserts. What caught my eye, was not just the presentation but they way he pronounced the word. He pronounced the word, rasPberries. Emphasis on the P! The desserts for some reason sounded extra delicious.
I decided to make some raspberry sauce to drizzle over some ice cream and whipped cream. Chocolate and raspberries go well together just like strawberries and cherries. Just about any berry goes well with chocolate.
Whenever, you have fruit that is going to spoil and you know it will, try to make something out of it. Another option is to dice and freeze your fruit. You can make smoothies, sauces, and even jams with leftover fruit.
Lets get started!

- Heat a saucepan and mix all your ingredients.

I plan to experiment some more with raspberry sauce. It was super delicious, easy and cheap to make! Next time I can add different berries and make jars of it to gift. Father’s day is coming up. This would be a nice gift for all the dads who love sweets. You can make a nice basket filled with toppings for ice cream and add some bowls and serving spoon. It is a wonderful gift for the month of June. It even makes a nice birthday or graduation gift.
