Apparently mulberries are somewhat of a wonder fruit … packed full of anti-oxidants, minerals, vitamins, and even iron – which is a good thing because I’m picking an average of a kilogram a day. And that does not include the berries eaten by the birds and bats, or those that fall onto the ground before I can pick them, or the ones that fall into my mouth as I am picking – although that quantity has lessened since I discovered that scoffing a large quantity of mulberries has a rather undesirable consequence (if you know what I mean!!)
Since finding the mulberry tree at the bottom of my garden soon after I moved in, I have done nothing to it except severely prune it about 18 months ago – no water, no sprays, no fertilizer – nothing. Goodness knows what would have happened if I had lavished it with care….
So my freezer is full of mulberries, and so is Des & David’s (thank you), and now I need to add to my single mulberry recipe repertoire to avoid boring everybody including myself!
