When to Look for Raspberries: Raspberries come into season just as strawberries are beginning to taper off, typically starting in early July and continuing until the frosts. We do all our freezing at the perfect ripeness.
Best Uses for Raspberries: In British Colombia, only 3% of raspberries are consumed fresh, and the rest are either frozen or processed into jams, jellies, baked goods, vinegars, and as flavoring for high-end beers.
How to Store Frozen Raspberries: We vacuum seal all our berries for optimal freshness. When opening the bag leave in the fridge or counter to dethaw and separate the pieces. To reseal add to a larger bag or use a reusable clip.
