Formerly Faceless Recipes XXXIX (39)

This week I set out to take pictures of the tiger lilies that bloom on and near my property.
As I was snapping pictures, something caught my eye. It was still a few weeks early for blackberries, so I had to investigate.
Raspberries. Wild raspberries!
I grabbed a container, donned the requisite long pants and sleeves (yes, it was in the upper 80s and humid, but raspberries tend to be a bit thorny, so...), and headed out to pick. My oldest son, noticing my getup, informed me that there were more berries at the far corner of the property.
I picked a quart that day and another pint a few days later.
So it stands to reason that I needed some tasty new raspberry recipes to try.
I even invented one of my own.
Here we go...
Raspberry Whip
By: Gale Lalmond
 This was good, but believe me, a little goes a long way. It was very, very sweet. The combination of the gelatin and yogurt made a very pretty base for my wild black raspberries.
Raspberry Salsa
By: Karen
 I really loved this. I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first. I had lots of wild black raspberries to use up, so I decided to give it a try and made half a batch. I took another reader's suggestion and made cinnamon tortilla chips (I followed the directions from Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips). I let the salsa sit overnight to allow the flavors to blend. I will definitely make this one again, the next time I harvest berries.
Raspberry Iced Tea
By: martibj5
 This was good, but the next time I make it I will only steep my tea bags for 3 minutes rather than five. I found that after 5 minutes, the resulting tea was a little bitter for my taste.  I used Splenda and Crystal Light lemonade powder to make this sugar-free for my diabetic hubby.
Raspberry-Mandarin Whip
By: Chmeliar
This was very good, but I think it would be even better without the bananas. I'd rather have more manadarin oranges and raspberries. The bananas got a bit mushy after freezing. This isn't too sweet, and the raspberries added just the right amount of tartness.
Side note: I fully intended on using my wild black raspberries for this recipe, but when I realized how stiff the base was, I knew they would fall apart. I hit the freezer for some red raspberries I had recently frozen instead.
Clam Chowder III
This was very good and creamy. It did need a little more flavor, however. I ended up adding extra salt, pepper, and garlic powder to the finished product. This makes six entree-sized servings.  If you plan on serving this as a first course or with a sandwich, it's probably more like 10 servings. 
Grilled Corn with Chive Butter
By: Sue Kirsch
This was my first real experience grilling corn in the husk. It turned out very well and was tasty. I used fresh chives from the garden. Next time I will probably add a little grated garlic to the butter for some extra flavor
Raspberry Bliss Smoothie
My Personal Recipe
  I developed this recipe after discovering I had wild raspberries growing right on my property.  I was looking for something quick and simple to enjoy them without having to run to the store for ingredients. This fit the bill and was so good I'll definitely make it again and again.
Sorry, I couldn't resist this raspberry gif.

You make everything look so beautiful!

Nice photos! Pam, do you think a pinch of baking soda would help the iced tea as it does apparently in Smooth Sweet Tea from this site? I haven't tried that recipe yet, but look at the reviews of it!

Beautiful photos Pam. Wild blackberies grow near me along a walking path. I fully intend to get LOTS and make jam. The only thing is that when the blackberries ripen summer is coming to a close.

About Me
I have three teenage sons who are picky eaters (especially the middle one). I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My husband started out a picky eater when we met back in 1986, but he's gotten much better and is willing to try ALMOST anything I make. In my spare time I teach second grade. I have introduced my students to cooking and/or new foods over the years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all sorts of new recipes, so I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. I enjoy using fresh ingredients from the garden and canning those ingredients to use year-round. I also enjoy baking treats for my second grade class. I'll try almost anything if I think my family will eat it. Of course, I've been known to try a recipe because I want to, whether they'll eat it or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the pumpkin pies and other desserts for Thanksgiving. I always like to try one new dessert for each holiday. Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition that goes back as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty cool cakes for my boys' birthdays. They include a firetruck, baseball, football, and Pokeball. I've also used shaped pans to decorate everything from Barney and Elmo, Power Ranger, Jeff Gordon's #24 racecar, football helmet, a dog and dog house, a monkey, a giant cupcake, and a penguin. Some recent cakes have been a pizza, chef's hat, and Topsy-Turvy (Mad Hatter Cake.) The last one didn't collapse - that was a real triumph! One of my best triumphs has been teaching my boys to cook. They'll never go hungry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked a turkey I relied on my thermometer to tell when it was done. It wasn't.
