Some raspberries produce in the spring, some in the fall, some do both. Of the berries we have in the garden, Frederick and Alastair both have chosen raspberries as their favorites. Both boys believe these berries to be the sweetest of all. I love them because of their complex flavors. Each variety sings its own special song and they all take on rich qualities when cooked.
This berry delicious dessert showcases fresh and roasted raspberries. Pile the berries and toppings on slices of your favorite shortcake. Or forget the cake and just go for a bowl of berries with ice cream and whipped cream.
If possible, try different varieties of raspberries in their range of colors from black through purple to red and on to yellow. Each will give you a slightly different taste experience.
You might also freeze your dessert plates for an hour or two before assembling these desserts. It buys you a little time before the ice cream begins to melt.
