3 ways to make the most of summer berries

In season Summer Berries

Summer berries are in peak season here in the UK. The shops are fully stocked with juicy strawberries, blueberries, cherries and raspberries. Berries are a nutritional power house –  high in antioxidants, which help to counter environmental damage to our cells.

Where possible I like to buy my fruit and veggies when they are in season. They will taste better and be much cheaper.  I also try to buy organic where possible (especially for fruit that I eat the skin of) or otherwise try buying from a pick-your-own farm or whole food market.

Berries can easily be frozen without effecting there nutritional value or taste. So buy in bulk, let them ripen on the kitchen bench, then wash, dry and freeze in freezer bags.

Plan ahead to get the most out of these little gems.

 

Here are three ways to make yummy meals with summer berries. These recipes can be modified by swapping one type of berry for another – allowing you to use up what you have on hand (or what arrived in your fruit and veggie box this week).
