It is summer here and I am overwhelmed with berries.I Have made enough jam to last several years, I have over 20 pies in the freezer, plus several cheesecakes. I Have made berry ice cream topping, and berry cordial. I have frozen over 20 kg of berries. I have run out of recipes. So I am open to suggestions of what to make.

we have raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries, and strawberries

thanks

We only have raspberries and far less than you, but my six year old has been walking around saying ; "I never want to see another raspberry!". It's been a bumper year.

My husband made raspberry muffins with raspberry and mint cream (our mint is also going crazy). That's all I've got. I think I'm with Ms 6 lol.

We wash then and then freeze them on cookie sheets, so they are individually frozen, then bag them in gallon (4L) ziploc freezer bags. That way they are ready for eating or cooking whenever we need them in the off months. I have to buy them though--lucky you!

 

Besides using them for baking and recipes, we use them straight from the freezer in smoothies.

Would it be worth it to dehydrate some of the berries?

Here is a recipe my m-i-l gave me years ago. She would use this to make berry milkshakes or to put on ice cream, pancakes, or waffles. She would make the juice from her berries. It's not nutritionally politically correct anymore, though. :ohmy:

I'm trying to imagine a freezer large enough to have over 20 pies in it.

Make a care package and send it to WA ;) Just kidding. Honestly I don't have any other ideas for you. Do you have any apples - you could always make berry-applesauce and can it for the winter months.

 

I would love to send you some, But I live in a fruit fly area and fruit movement is limited.

This recipe is very similar to the one I used for making berry ice cream topping.

I used half berries half sugar, boil for a few minutes and bottle.

I was going to say the same thing. Send me some! We love berries and I can't grow them to save my life.
