Wild Raspberry Vinaigrette
Wild raspberry plants are abundant in Alaska. They can be found anywhere: the neighborhood, roads, parks, etc. When I walk my dog during the raspberry season in the summer, I always have ziploc bags to put the wild raspberries in. My dog knows that mommie would stop at every raspberry plant that shows some ripe fruits. I also discovered that raspberries are great natural treats to my dog as long as she doesn't indulged on them too much. This is one more activity my dog and I both share. A raspberry for mommie, a rasperry for baby.....

Put raspeberries with brown sugar into food processor.
Add the combined rice and apple cider vinegar.
Add the fresh thyme, ground pepper & Kosher salt.
Slowly pour the extra-virgin olive oil into food processor.
The oil & vinegar combination would emulsify.
Strain off extra seeds.

Oil would coagulate when it stays in the refrigerate for days.
Before using, remove from refrigerator.
Let it sit in room temperature for about one to two hours.
Whisk to emulsify before serving.

The color bursting with life and cheeriness, the body oodles with silken tufts, its shape distinct into conformity, and let alone when a well-ripened raspberry hits your taste buds, you have only the next step in mind...have more.
A Raspberries Worth in Nutrition
You can forage wild raspberries during the short summer season in Alaska. There are bushes that yield perfect-sized mouthful bites of sweetness, and there are that are meant for pureeing. Freshly-picked raspberries can't be beat by store-bought baskets. Still, the vitamins, especially Vitamin C lords over the fruit.
