Dear Food Editor:
This winter’s press kit from the Oregon Raspberry and Blackberry Commission gives your readers ideas for delicious ways to brighten up any special event. Each of these two featured recipes includes photos and special tips to use in sidebar information.
- Red Raspberry Holiday Trifle
This luscious red raspberry trifle will grace your holiday table with rich jewel like tones and a taste that will bring back memories of holidays past. Fortunately for you red raspberries are no longer just a summertime memory, they are available individually quick frozen year round for use in a variety of delicious recipes and are found in the frozen food section of your local grocery.
- Sweet Potato Pound Cake with Buttermilk Ice Cream
and Blackberry Bourbon Compote
Nothing says down home cooking like a rich, moist pound cake made even tastier with sweet potatoes. Serve this delight with hand cranked buttermilk ice cream and top it all off with the jewel toned goodness of blackberries spiced with bourbon and served thick and warm. Your taste buds will thank you!
While Oregon Marionberries are available frozen across the country, your readers may substitute fresh or frozen blackberries in both these recipes with excellent results.
We look forward to hearing from you, and should you require additional recipes or further information just contact Cat McKenzie, Marketing Director.
