Early raspberries are coming into season where I live. I managed to snag the very last half-pint at the farmers’ market this week. As fellow market patrons looked on with envy, I hurried home to make some raz-tastic recipes.

Berries from your local farmers’ market are extra-special. Small farms have the luxury of growing unique varieties that are much more interesting than what’s at the grocery store.

These delicate, ruby red raspberries are just right for tossing on salad, making raspberry vinaigrette, or one of my favorite summer desserts -- berry trifle.
