The old fashioned mulberry trees are just beginning to get ripe berries.  They sure are good and sweet with absolutely zero gristly taste!😃❤️

However, I've never made anything to eat with them other than jelly.  I just don't have time to do it this year.

Just wondering if anyone has some easy recipe suggestions please?

@cheriere They look delicious. I would make muffins with them.

I had a huge mulberry tree on a property I once lived on in Texas.  It we as loaded with delicious looking fruit.  Upon close inspection, I discovered every single part of every berry had a tiny white worm in it.  How do you get rid of them?  I would've  loved to have eaten those berries.

I've never noticed any worms or bugs in these before.  I always soak them in a large pan of water with a little salt in it.  Then soak them again.

I sure hope they don't have anything like that inside lol.  I've been eating them all my life and lots of times right off the tree.😃❤️

@cheriere   The house I grew up in (Miami) had 2 mulberry trees (among other types of fruit trees).  I love them!  I wish we had a mulberry tree at my current house.  I will have to look into that.  I don't have any recipes but we would just eat them as they were.  Heart

That may be what ends up happening here.  I've already eaten most of what was picked off yesterday lol.

I hope you get another tree.😃

I think they're a delicious berry that unfortunately most people don't get to experience enough.

@cheriere. @SloopJohnB.  They seem to look and taste a lot like a blackberry.  I'd try any blackberry recipe and reduce the sugar.  I bet they'd make a fantastic pie.

I think that would work really well!  I actually thought about making a cobbler with them, just like I would with blackberries.  However, you're exactly right about cutting the sugar.  
I think that's what would surprise a lot of people about mulberries, just how much sweeter they are.

Thanks for this suggestion.😃❤️
