Frozen Raspberries Suggestion

teebee's picture

Hi Everyone,


I am relatively new here, but have been reading a lot.  I am trying to use up what is in my freezer as we are almost ready to break through the wall from the new kitchen to the old kitchen (they started putting in the cabinets on Valentine's Day--what a great gift!).  My DH has a berry garden and has frozen several (4 or 5, I think) pint size bags of raspberries.  Any suggestions as to what I should do with them?  They look to be in pretty good condition.  I'm thinking something other than pie, although I may resort to that.  Thanks in advance for your ideas!


I have been doing a lot of reading here, and there seems to be as many non-cooking discussions as there are cooking!  I'm sure that I'll need more advice when I get my new appliances as I've never used a convection oven before.

I just made a coulis from Marion berries that I froze last summer. I'm serving it tonight as a sauce with lemon cake and lemon curd (also from the freezer)
You could bake them in a coffee cake. Put them in your morning oatmeal.

Use can also mix them with fresh winter fruit like apples or pears or both and make a crumble.
I just did poached pears in spiced red wine and served it with a raspberry coulis, simply strained and sugared.

Hi and welcome (from a newbie myself). How about an apple-raspberry crisp? And they'd be great in smoothies (plain yogurt, milk, banana and berries, yum).

Make a lemon-curd trifle and layer them in with the custard. :-)

My son and I just did this on Thursday! It was really good.

it's one of my favourite trifles - besides tasting great, so pretty to look at.

I totally agree. I like to make it with angel food cake because the colors are outstanding and it tastes good. My son demonstrated this for his Jr. High cooking class last week, so we had to make a few run-throughs. If you were closer, I would have invited you over. We were awash in lemon/raspberry trifle for a few days. We were handing it out to anyone who came over.

do you like a thick or thin custard for your trifle? I like a very 'loose' trifle. It has to be gently scooped out and it should just melt onto the plate, but not be soupy. If it's firmer than that, I know I won't like it.LOL

I actually fold whipped cream into the custard to make it very light. I love a thick custard in other things, but not in my trifle.

I made a lemon curd trifle today because I had leftover lemon cake, curd and berries. I mixed 1 C cream, whipped, with 1 C lemon curd.

sounds lovely and soft - was it good? Now I am so craving a lemon curd trifle - I have frozen raspberries in the freezer. ;-)

It makes a delicious trifle but it isn't as loose as you describe.

I'm a yogurt lover so I mix them with plain yogurt along with some blueberries. Makes a great lunch or snack. healthy, too! Also, you would make a raspberry sauce and pour it over brownie sundaes with vanilla ice cream.

I freeze raspberries which I have picked at a berry farm, keeping them whole, freezing them on a cookie sheet. They are just like fresh berries, my favorite treat in the winter to top off my granola.

We go through huge amounts of frozen berries - we like to have yogurt shakes for lunch. Just yogurt, berries, a little cinnamon - sometimes a banana added. I know this is too simple and you are looking for real recipes, but since you have so many in the freezer, a yogurt shake is quite healthy and delicious....

Heat the frozen berries, strain out the seeds and add a cup or so of the juice/puree to your favorite chocolate ice cream recipe. Or, add some sugar and use it as an ice cream topping.

We like raspberry muffins .  If the raspberries are big, I crush them a bit into smaller pieces while they're frozen.  They're a nice replacement for blueberries in bran muffins.

Smoothies are a great way to start the day.  My favorite is frozen raspberries, banana, melon, yoghurt and cranberry juice.
