Another thing I have been doing lately is eating raspberries, raspberries so ripe that they bruise and break open at a touch, staining my fingertips and lips. I didn't realize that I like raspberries until a few weeks ago, or at least I couldn't remember why I thought I didn't like them. And anyway, my general strategy is to taste whatever is in season, since soon it won't be.

My favorite part is when they have burst gently on the inside, leaving a tiny pool of bright red in the hollow at the center. If I were just a little bit smaller, I would go swimming in there.
