You may or may not be scratching you head right now. Yes there are raspberries and there are blackberries but one of my favorite treat comes in the form of black raspberries. While these grow wild in Illinois, you can sometimes find them in the grocery store. I think the black raspberry has a bit more distinctive and sweeter flavor the their red counterpart. Ever summer it’s a battle with the neighbors to see who gets to the bushes first.
Similar to the other berries, these store great in the freezer. Toss with a little lime juice, lay out on a baking tray, freeze, and then place in a freezer safe container. Of course, I rarely can pick enough black raspberries to store! You will also see, I don’t have many recipes for black raspberries. I tend to eat them with yogurt, on pancakes, or by themselves!
