1 egg
1 tsp. almond extract
2 tbsps. Cake and Pastry Flour

Most people know that raspberries are nutritious, but did you know that the seed of raspberry fruit is nutritious as well?

Raspberries are a good source of natural ellagic acid, including the seeds! In fact, raspberries are a leading source of ellagic acid.

It is believed that ellagic acids may slow down the growth of some cancer cells.

Research has also shown that ellagic acid from raspberries is easily absorbed by the body.

The seeds of raspberries also serve as beneficial "roughage" in the digestive tract.

Including the raspberry seeds when making raspberry jam or jelly is a "berry" healthy idea!
