The berry is a simple fruit, yet it encompasses a wide variety of crops. Of fruits classified as berries, the blueberry, raspberry and strawberry are among the most widely cultivated.
Look for berries of good color. Store berries in the refrigerator and wash thoroughly before use.
Berries can be enjoyed plain, with cereal, in a salad, over ice cream or in cakes, pies, muffins, pancakes or cobblers. Berries can be frozen in re-sealable freezer bags or containers that have a good seal.
