But as the  nights close in and temperatures drop, those little jewels burst into splendour and provide welcome colour in the garden, not to mention their immense flavour.  I will be picking and freezing these raspberries regularly for the next month or so.  Throughout the winter they will be used to make raspberry jam or I’ll pile them on top of a stack of pancakes on a rainy Sunday morning.  In November, raspberries will be added to gin and vodka and when they have flavoured the alcohol, I will make Boozy Raspberry Bites instead of discarding the now well-used fruit.
