A taste of summer

Here in west Wales it truly feels like winter has arrived: dark nights, dark days and cold damp walks with the dogs.

I am very thankful, therefore, for the fact that my autumn raspberries continue to supply a small taste of summer every few days. There aren’t many of them, and the flavour may not be as intense as it was a couple of months ago, but I find it a great joy to go out into the garden and harvest a small taste of sunshine to add to my breakfast… and they are all the more welcome for being fresh.

Summer in November

  1. Autumn raspberries. Here in Canada that means going to the store to buy the ones from Mexico. Sigh.

    • Ah, what a shame… we are blessed with the Gulf Stream, which makes it wet but relatively mild here compared to you in Canada. All the rain can be wearing, though!

    Yes, the autumn raspberries have been AMAZING (along with blueberries) and have filled up the spaces usually taken up by stewed apple in the freezer. I have also made raspberry vodka…………
