There’s no time of year more appropriate than barbecue season to show the beautiful balance raspberry brings to the savory side of the dinner menu. Add a layer of raspberry flavor to your barbecued meats and seafood with a homemade raspberry glaze or salsa. Raspberry sauces add a beautiful rosy color and bright acidity to balance the flavor of grilled meats.
You can even turn on the grill specifically for frozen red raspberries! In a small bowl, combine one bag of frozen raspberries, the juice and zest of one lemon, and a sprinkling of sugar. Put the berry mixture in aluminum foil and seal up the sides. Place on the grill over medium heat for about 10 minutes. The result is a sweet, nutrient-rich syrupy topping, perfect for dousing on ice cream, frozen yogurt, or a slice of cake!
