12 Ways to Use Summer Berries


Berry season is in full swing across much of North America and, hopefully, you have more berries in your kitchen than you know what to do with (what a great problem to have!). Blackberries, raspberries and blueberries are terrific on their own, and, of course, in a variety of desserts, but we thought we’d look beyond the basics and check out some more unusual ways to cook and bake with berries. Click through for some ideas.

Thanks. I have bags of frozen strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries in the freezer. I also have a few bananas. I freeze them before they get rotten if I can't eat them fast enough and use them in baking or for smoothies.

The Blackberry-Apple Crisp looks very tasty indeed.

I would love to know where to buy Winesap Apples. For me they are the tastiest, applies of all the apples I have tasted.

I do like the Pippin, especially for baking(pies, crisps, cobblers, etc.) They hold up very well when compared to, lets say, a McIntosh(which is great for applesauce).
