Lush, ripe and berry sweet, these fruits look delicious enough to pick right off the page. With berry picking season in full swing, it’s hard to resist the singular experience of biting into a delicate raspberry, a plump blueberry or a tart blackberry. They’re satisfying enough on their own or lend a delicious taste twist when paired with different flavors or used in recipes.
I like mixing raspberries and honey in plain yogurt, but if you’re seeking something more adventurous try the mixed berry pavlova recipe by Smitten Kitchen. It looks like a light, delicious cake with a generous berry topping.
And don’t forget to submit your photos to the CU photo-sharing site for a chance to be the Photo of the Week! Each week the Photo of the Week is taken from that week’s submissions. You have to submit every week for a chance to be featured. You could also see your photo in the magazine sometime.
Remember to fill out the captions and give your gallery a name all its own. The more we know about an image, the more we can take from it.
