    Unfortunately our Australian berry farmers can't compete with the prices of Chinese or Chilean berries which is why it's hard to source frozen raspberries here, Elgin organics has Australian frozen blueberries, strawberries and boysenberries from NZ but rarely have raspberries any more as they are hard to find locally

    I too only buy fresh when we can afford it since that hepA scare. We really don't eat them that often to worry about cost

    I just rinse them well about four or five times now, until the water runs very clear, and hope any contamination is washed off. There doesn't seem to be a viable alternative.

    Can't win! I don't normally buy frozen either- I was given a new baking recipe book for Mothers Day and my boys chose berry muffins as the first recipe to make and it called for frozen mixed berries... I could have bought fresh, except it would have cost about $20 for the berries alone.

    Back to not buying any, I think...

    Say the frozen berries did have Hep A, wouldn't cooking them kill the virus?

    Default Frozen berries?

    http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2015-0...itis-a/6120872

    This said if you cook above 85 degrees it kills hep a so cooking the berries in muffins should be ok

    ETA sorry just read you've already eaten them haha

    I used to put them on my bub's porridge. I do zap in microwave but have no clue what temp that is! I guess the last bit about it being rare is making me think I might start eating them again so hard get fresh now. I suppose this kind of thing could happen with lots of food I certainly can't start growing all my own 😉
