We went raspberry picking yesterday morning at Navarino Orchard. It was cool and damp. We got there just after they opened and no one else came the entire time we were in the patch. The kid tried one and declared that it was good. For a while she was picking with us and singing a berry picking song. It was cute. I wish I remembered the words. Then she got sick of it and decided that she was hungry/tired/didn't feel good, so we called it quits. We picked just over 2 pounds. We had no idea what we were going to do with them.
The taste of fresh raspberries is worth the effort of going to find them. They are sweet and the flavor is way better than anything you find on a grocery store shelf.
A friend sent me an article on freezing berries from Cooks Illustrated. We froze a quart using the sugar syrup method.
The farmer used a cup of raspberries and a cup of blueberries in a Berry Buckle from All Recipes. It is really good. The rest will go in my oatmeal and just get eaten.
