Freshness Test

It's relatively simple to determines if the raspberries are fresh — simply look at them. If you see they look damaged or no longer fresh, then they probably are. Ultimately, you just want raspberries that are firm, plump and have a nice deep red color to them. Raspberries spoil relatively quick so just buy what you need or pick what you need and then either freeze them or use within a day or two.


Important

Nothing to report.


General

Raspberries can often be found growing in the wild, in parks, etc and so you can pick them if you want. Some farms offer you the ability to pick your own — this method is known as "U–Pick". In addition to raspberries, many farms also allow you to pick blueberries, etc. When picking raspberries yourself, always remember to choose the berries higher up — why? Well, let's face it, dogs and other animals are known to "water the plants" and so if you choose raspberries grown lower to the ground, then they may come with extra, albeit unwanted, flavorings!

Raspberries are best picked in August but can be found, depending on the climate, from June to October.

Hatha Yoga

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.

Unlike flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.

Jesse is not flexible — never has been and probably never will be flexible like others. But it doesn't matter. In pure hatha yoga, how flexible you are makes no difference. It's all about loving the pose and focussing the mind on the stretch.

If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.

Follow me on Facebook and watch my videos on YouTube.
