Raspberries provide vitamins and minerals to foods they adorn. They make a nice red color splash in fruit salads, baked goods and party punch.
Blueberries can be substituted for the raspberries. Mango can be substituted for the cantaloupe or honeydew.
When purchasing fresh berries, make sure to look the package over carefully. The fruit on the bottom shouldn’t be bruised, and the fruit should smell sweet, not musty. Store berries unwashed and loosely covered in the refrigerator.
