Homegrown Raspberries Make Top Notch Shortbread

Credit Elspeth Hay

Elinor Arsenault grew up baking in the small town of Royalton, Massachusetts, where a good portion of the population was Finnish. This week on the Local Food Report, Elinor shares her Finnish-inspired recipe for a traditional raspberry shortbread made with raspberry jam from her own Orleans-grown berries.

You can find Elinor's recipe for raspberry shortbread on Elspeth's blog, Diary of a Locavore.

And you can check out the SEMAP (Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership) fruit harvest calendar over here. Raspberries are in season twice a summer: once from late June through late July, and again from mid August through early October.
