** Raspberries will keep for up to 1 year in the freezer. Double bagging the plastic bags may help prevent freezer burn!
** To use frozen raspberries in quick breads or quick-cooking items: For waffles, pancakes, or fast-cooked stovetop dishes, thaw raspberries for 30-45 minutes before use. To help thicken the juices that are present when you defrost raspberries, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cornstarch on every 1 cup of frozen raspberries.
** To use frozen raspberries in baked goods like muffins, scones, and donuts: Keep the raspberries frozen, do not defrost prior to folding into the batter as this may throw off the liquid to dry ratios in the dough. Again, toss every 1 cup raspberries with 1 tablespoon cornstarch to help thicken juices as needed.
