Wild raspberries grow throughout most of Alaska and are valued for their intense, sweet-tart flavor. They can be eaten fresh, frozen or canned, made into sauces, jellies and jam and used in baked goods. The dried raspberry leaf is used for herbal tea, either alone or in combination with other herbs. This publication provides nutritional information for raspberries as well as instructions for cleaning and storing, freezing, drying, extracting juicing and preparing puree. In addition, there are recipes for jams and jellies, fruit leather, raspberry crisp and raspberry crumb cake.
