One hears of England's abundance of gooseberries time and again, but how often does one come across this elusive fruit here in America? Yet if one is in luck, one might find them at more progressive farm stands and this lovely jam is sure to follow.
A trip upstate a few weekends ago quickly turned into a raspberry picking spree after we saw a sign on the side of the road advertising U-Pick berries. I knew that a batch of jam was my first order of business.
My head has been whirling with the cranberries now in season. It's been what my latest recipes are all about. Since late last year I have been craving a combination of my two favorite berries. Cranberries and Raspberries. Enjoy!
The season for golden raspberries is fleeting so take advantage of it with this confluence of berry and pear. And toss out the toast! Serve it as shown here, spooned atop sour cream with walnuts. C'mon, live a little!
