I'm trying to be a better friend to berries.
All too often I withdraw a moldy berry basket from the fridge shelf. Frowning, I ask myself "didn't I buy these just 2 days ago?" And then I remember it was more like 7, and then I recall the berry tart recipe I was supposed to make but then abandoned because it no longer felt special to me.
Fresh produce will suffer at the hands of a fickle baker.
I'm trying to do better, so last week's flavor will make a repeat appearance this week. And since undertaking this effort I've learned that you should never, ever pass up the opportunity to stew raspberries on the stove top. It's a kind of aromatherapy that cannot be bottled and sold.
