I just called Picha farms in Puyallup and they’re reporting they have just a few days of raspberries left for the season (and blackberries, too).

Anthony’s restaurants have been serving Picha raspberries and berries from other Washington berry farms in some of its desserts and drinks. On the menu at Anthony’s: Washington Berry Shortcake and cocktails like Spiked Berry Lemonade, Northwest Berry Cosmos, Blueberry Drop and a Bumbleberry Rita.

With berry season dwindling, Anthony’s soon will start serving desserts and drinks made with Washington grown peaches.

Click “read more” for the recipe from Anthony’s for Fresh Washington Berry Shortcake. You can make it with Picha raspberries or you can substitute any kind of berry or fruit.
