Picking Golden Raspberries

It's now officially fall, but here at my Bedford, New York farm we’re still picking the last of summer’s delicious fruits - those small, fragrant, and refreshingly sweet raspberries.

Last week, I noticed there were many golden raspberries growing on my shrubs, so we started picking them right away. Golden raspberries are much like the red raspberries except for their color - they're also extremely sweet with honeyed apricot tones and just a subtle hint of tartness. Although raspberries are best eaten raw, I love to use them as ingredients in jams and jellies, pies and tarts.
