I love Raspberries. I used to say that it's also my favorite artificial flavor. I buy Raspberry Water, Raspberry Jam, Raspberry Yogurt and Raspberry Sorbet. I'm sure there are other foods that I prefer when made with Raspberries.
This one has been added to my collection of The Best of the Best Recipes.
