Raspberry is the fruit of plants belonging to the genus rubus. The plants grow in both the wild and cultivated state. The fruit, which is oval in shape and averages about J-inch in diameter, is made up of many single-seeded drupelets held to- gether by a central core. This core, or hull, is removed before eating.
Raspberries are best eaten as fresh as possible, but ifthey are to be stored, keep them in a cool place, such as a refrig-erator, in a single layer to prevent mould forming.
Raspberries are delicious eaten raw with castor sugar and cream, but they also may be cooked and used in jams, fools, flans and puddings.
