BERRIES TO BE JOYFUL ABOUT THIS SEASON….##RASPBERRIES

Lately, I’ve observed an upswing in raspberries. Generally, these red and juicy fruits are popular in the summer months. However, thanks to the an increase in production that includes overseas, these delicious and tasty berries will be available year round. Reports in the media state that maximum production has been up 475% this year.

Now, if you enjoy these fiber rich fruits, that’s music to the ears. Raspberries are also a rich source of vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to the body. They are low in calories and make them excellent foods for keeping a slim waistline.

As a result, a couple of days ago, I stock up on a bountiful batch of the bright-red berries. I couldn’t resist the freshness. And of course, because abundance is high, the price was quite competitive compared a few months ago. I’ll be stocking up and freezing for later.

A little tip bit:-  To prevent the growth of mold on berries, including raspberries, rinse only at consumption. And, try to consume within a few days as the shelf life associated to them is very short.

I’m happy……Ho, Ho, Ho!!
