The neighbors invited me over to pick raspberries yesterday. They have a bumper crop of them this year and I came home with over a gallon! Wasn't sure what I'd do with them all, but I found my new favorite hot-weather dessert--Raspberry Freezes! I filled ice cube trays with fresh raspberries, then poured just enough water in each well to dampen the fruit. Froze 'em, et voila! Raspberry Freezes.

You can add sugar or other sweetener if you want, but I like mine plain. And if you want a slightly larger portion, you can partially fill muffin tins and freeze the same way. When frozen, loosen by setting the bottom of the tin in about a half-inch of warm water, pop out the fruit and store in a container in the freezer.
