There's nothing like raspberries to brighten up a cold, dark January day. Of course, the fresh sort will be jet-lagged, scarily expensive and disappointingly flavour-free. But at this time of year frozen, preferably British, raspberries really come into their own.
freezing process accentuates their sharp, fresh flavour, and they retain
their seductive perfume, providing a refreshing contrast to
stick-to-the-ribs winter food. They're perfect after Christmas when you
can't work up any enthusiasm for autumn's apples and pears, and
clementines and satsumas are turning dry and fibrous.
