In Need of Fresh Raspberries Recipes



I have a good amount of raspberries sitting in my fridge that i need to use up. My good neighbor just have around 5 pounds of raspberries he brought from Oregon ( how i just love him!)
I need to use them fast before they go to waste; I'm not a fan of freezing fruits. Every tasty sounding thing i can think to google calls for raspberry preserves. I'd make my own quick jam as a substitute, but that'd take way too much time i got to thinking about somehow incorporating cream cheese and chocolate if possible because that would be delicious. Maybe in a cheesecake, but i only have a pound or so of cream cheese and would rather not go to the store due to my low budget lol.. Maybe some type of oatmeal bar? have any suggestions?

I just made my mom and girlfriend a black forest cake, but instead of using cherries I used raspberries, since my mom does not care for cherries. I used up some of my berries making the filling, decorating it, and I even made my own raspberry-infused liqueur (although I just used chambord =p). And guess what? there are still plenty of raspberries left! They need to be put in good use ASAP, any any ideas are more than welcome.

  1. Every thought of freezing them and using them for smoothies? I know that seems kind of easy, but if you run out of ideas and don't want to waste perfectly good raspberries, you could keep that as a last resort. I'm not big on raspberries, but sometimes I find with certain foods, it makes the perfect accent.

  2. Black Forest cake w/ raspberries sounds badass. Not much of a chef, myself, so I can't help you out with the raspberry surplus.
