Last Sunday, my little person and I picked mulberries at a friend’s farm.
Colin warned us at the outset that the berries this year were a little dry; on tasting, I found them to be some of the sweetest I had ever eaten! We walked away from his farm with 2.6L of berries, 20 purple fingers and 2 very happy hearts [thank you, Colin!].
As is the case for berries in general, mulberries comprise naturally high doses of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, and boast multiple health benefits. Aside from all of that, they are delicious!
If you happen to live in Perth, you can also find blueberries and strawberries in season right now. You can use berries in so many raw and cooked recipes, like smoothies, jellies, tarts and sauces. We have been enjoying and sharing our mulberries exactly as they are: perfect little packages of purple goodness.
