Place bread cubes in a greased 13-by-9-inch baking dish. In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, ¾ cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and then pour over the bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

Raspberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Raspberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
