What Berries can you Roast?

All. Of. Them.


If you’ve never had roasted Oregon berries, then get ready for a revelation. Most everyone has experience macerating berries–the process of covering your berries with sugar and maybe a little corn starch or tapioca flour to thicken the juices. This is common for pie recipes, such as a strawberry rhubarb pie.

The slow-roasting process is different than maceration in that you don’t need to add extra sugar to some varieties of berries. The low heat and long process brings out the natural sugars while evaporating off excess water for a taste and flavor you have to experience! Best of all, the roasted berries will last for up to about a month in a jar in the fridge if you can keep from eating them that long.

What can I use Roasted Berries on?

The real question is what not to use them on! They are amazing on breakfast foods like oatmeal, yogurt, or in smoothies. You can add them to pancakes, waffles, or French toast with amazing results. You can enjoy them in ice creams or shakes, on cakes, and even in salad dressing! There are also many flavor variations you can try, such as adding balsamic, vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom…the possibilities are endless.
