Here's an old method for preserving fruit with a fresh taste without cooking. The juicy crushed berries make a nice spread for bread, and a delicious filling for cake. Sugared berries will keep for a year or longer under refrigeration. You can prepare blackberries or strawberries the same way, but raspberries seem to do and taste best. Adapted from The Gift of Southern Cooking by Edna Lewis and Scott Peacock. Raspberries are grown all over the United States and Europe, and belong in the New Englan, Mid Atlantic, Southern, Mid West, Eastern European, French, Australian, and Scandinavian catagories.
