"Raspberries have 50% more cancer-fighting ellagic acid than strawberries, and double the fiber."
When camping in the forests of central Canada, first comes blue, then comes red. Late spring offers a harvest of wild blueberries, then, not long afterward, the raspberry bushes bloom with sweet, juicy little red fruit. I’ll never forget descending a portage hill, canoe on head, and being assaulted with a mouth-watering fragrance. Lifting the canoe, I saw below me an acre-sized berry batch, ripe for the picking and all to myself. An hour later, with red fingers and a very berry belly, I imagined how the native children must have loved to discover an enchanted meadow just like this.

A concentrated taste; does not take more than a few handfuls added to a two or three apples to produce a glass of summer taste. Nonetheless, this is more of an expensive indulgence than a mainstay juice.
Picking Perfect Produce
Not available all year. This is a delicate fruit and is usually sold in small plastic trays. Look closely for mold or mushy fruit.
Storing Your Produce
Will keep only a few days in the fridge.
A great addition to apple or orange juice.
