Wondering which are the berry best berries? Delicious, beautiful, sweet and simple – berries are as healthful as they are delicious. They make simple snacks, festive fruit salads and decadent desserts; their versatility is endless! You can see why dietitians say, “berries are best.”
Let’s find out what makes these ‘super’ foods the Berry Best Berries to Eat:
Cherries have a short season, but are great dried. They’re rich in fiber, Vitamin C and anthocyanidins, and are associated with promoting heart health and reducing cancer risk.
Strawberries are rich in folate, which is one of several B vitamins found in food. Folate is responsible for making healthy new cells and preventing anemia and neural tube defects in developing fetuses.
Blueberries contain phytonutrients called anthocyanidins, which help them neutralize free radical damage to the collagen matrix of cells and tissues. They help reduce damage that can cause cataracts, glaucoma, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, peptic ulcers, heart disease and cancer.
Cranberries are best known for their ability to prevent bacteria from adhering to bladder cells. They may also help promote gastrointestinal and oral health, prevent the formation of kidney stones, decrease bad cholesterol (called low-density lipoprotein or LDL), raise good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein or HDL), aid in recovery from stroke and even help prevent cancer.
Raspberries are best known for their antioxidant benefits and role in neutralizing free radicals. They are also high in manganese, Vitamin C, riboflavin, folate and niacin. In addition, raspberries are also a good source of dietary fiber.
Marionberries, boysenberries, loganberries and other blackberries are high in gallic acid, rutin and ellagic acid. With their dark-blue color, blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits. Blackberries are also rich in Vitamin C and fiber, which help reduce the risks of certain cancers.
1 cup dried goldenberries (or cranberries) finely chopped
Touch of Stevia (optional)
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine grape juice and agar agar. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly to prevent flakes from sticking to pan. Cook 5 minutes, or until agar agar has dissolved and juice is slightly reduced. Stir in goldenberries and remove from heat. Add a touch of Stevia if desired (taste first – it’s already quite sweet). Cover pot and let mix sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Uncover and transfer to small blender. Pulse a few times, until just reaching a chunky texture. (Alternatively, bruise berries with the back of a spoon to release seeds). Pour mixture in a glass jar with a lid. Refrigerate 1 hour. Stir to evenly distribute goldenberries that may have sunk to the bottom. Return to refrigerator, allowing jam to gel completely (about 2-3 hours) before serving. Keep refrigerated, stays fresh several weeks.
