Berries are a sweet summer treat and they are also nutritional powerhouses full of fiber, vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants like anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and resveratrol that may help to prevent cancer.

This week’s recipe features Raspberries in a delicious icebox cake recipe, and was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody.

“Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup.”
