Raspberries Finally In

We've been getting raspberries at the markets from farther south for awhile, but the local raspberries, which is to say the ones in my backyard, have shown no signs of getting big enough to ripen, let alone to chnge color.  And then, yesterday, there they were.  Only about a cup of them, almost all the early 'Sutters Gold,' which are kind of apricot colored and are sweet  and highly flavored but not too acidic.

So we sprinkled them over a little bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream and rolled them around our tongues with the other flavors mingling nicely and spoke about how absolutely wonderful summer is when it behaves properly.  Our deepest sympathies to those in the center of the country where the heat is unspeakable, but the raspberry crop may be fantastic.
