Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, cherries, black berries, gooseberries, black currants, and so many others, all have a special place in the hearts of Eastern Europeans. They are turned into everything from soup to savoury sauces to desserts to alcoholic beverages. Consider trying one of these Eastern European Raspberry Recipes.
There is no better flavour pairing than chocolate and raspberries and Bissinger's Chocolates has been using its European chocolate-making know-how on fresh and dried fruits for generations. They enrobe raspberries in fondant and then dip them into melted gourmet chocolate, in the same way they do their chocolate-covered cherries. But raspberry season is short, typically just the month of July, so grab them while you can.
