I love red. And black. Except I went with white. I took pictures of these raspberries in the dog days of summer - almost a blur for us as we have swapped weather with Seattle currently. In the upper 90s and almost 100 in Seattle whereas it's in the low 50s and 60s out here with lots and lots of precip.
How I love fall in summer! There might even be some fresh summer snow in the high country.
The second pic is my entry to Bee and Jai's Click: Bi-colour. I prefer the first pic but the white background could be anything. In the second pic, the berries are dusted with powdered sugar. White sugar on a summer berry. Snow in summer. Get it?
I made Jen's raspberry and lychee panna cotta with these raspberries. I didn't have fresh or canned lychees so I used 2 cups of lychee juice, added 3 tbsp sugar and boiled it down to a syrup. Medha loved it. This was the first time I have had panna cotta and the raspberries with the lychee flavor made it more enjoyable for me; otherwise, I don't think I am much of a panna cotta fan. To me, it tasted like a smooth flavored version of the rich cream (saaya) that would float to the top of the milk pot in India - something I meticulously strained out before using the milk, something my husband loves to slather on a slice of toast with a good dose of sugar and chomp into over the kitchen sink. Apparently, it doesn't taste the same if it's eaten at the table. Whatever.
