Strawberry season is over and raspberries have taken their place. Upinngil Farm has u-pick raspberries available, and you can also get them at their farm stand or Green Fields Market.

Raspberries are best if you don't wash them at all, because washing makes them turn kind of mushy--so you definitely want to know where they come from and how they were grown. Once picked, they don't last long, so eat or cook them right away. They don't dry well, alas, but can be frozen. All fruits will be soft after thawing, but raspberries will be completely mushy, so you probably want to tray freeze them first so you can add them to pie filling or whatever without having to thaw them first in order to separate them. And, of course, raspberries make great jam.
