Just as Emma discovered several years back, mulberries can be foraged in abundance at this time of year. We've discovered that we have a mulberry tree in our very own backyard and there are several across the street at a university building that's vacated for summer. Needless to say, we're flush with this fruit and looking for things to do with it:
So, we culled through the comments on related posts here at The Kitchn and searched the web far and wide and compiled these ideas (for ourselves and for any of you who may find yourselves with lots of mulberries, too!):
• Flavored rum: Soak them in rum for a month.
• Mulberry-orange muffins via Pleasant House
• Mulberry-thyme ice cream (Or just use the berries as a topping over vanilla ice cream.)
• Make granita!
• Mulberry cheesecake via Passionate about Baking
• Morat: a mead of honey, mulberries and spices
• Mix them with sour cream (or greek yogurt) and put a little honey on top.
• Baby Spinach & Mulberry Salad in Maple Vinaigrette
• Make raw cookies like Mulberry Balls.
• Make mulberry syrup.
