Raspberries have few calories and still have a great, fruity-sweet aroma. The healthy summer fruits taste good in desserts as well as in salads or with meat. tips and recipes.
In summer, raspberries grow in gardens, in fields and sometimes along the way. Their season is relatively short here, they are only available from regional cultivation from June to September, with the summer raspberries ripening first and the autumn raspberries starting in August.
When buying, it is advisable to use raspberries from the region, because the fruits taste best when they can fully ripen and have only short transport routes. If you pick them yourself, you can recognize ripe raspberries by their bright red color and sweet aroma. Raspberries picked too early, on the other hand, taste sour and do not ripen any more.

If you don’t use them immediately, they belong in the fridge, preferably next to each other on a flat plate. They stay there for about two days. If raspberries are stored too warm, they will mold quickly, if they are on top of each other instead of next to each other, they will become mushy.
