Autumn fruiting raspberries

It’s an exceptionally good year for the raspberries this year and that’s come after long periods of dry weather which has given the bees plenty of opportunity to pollinate and the flowers to set their fruit 😊

It’s important to collect the fruit immediately when they are ready as they do not keep well and grey mold takes hold after the slightest drop of rain. Don’t wait until there’s enough to fill a bowl, collect a little at a time and freeze them in a bag in the freezer and before long you will have enough to create all kinds of sweet treats such as jam, crumble or raspberry and apple tart 👨🏻‍🍳
