Mulberry Mania!

I have discovered the mulberry, and I am in love! 

Mulberries are a mild fruit that grows on trees and looks a lot like a blackberry.  My brother has one over-hanging in his yard, so I went over the other day and picked a TON of these little berries.  Then, I set to work making as many recipes as possible.  They're all fantastic, and I highly recommend you check them out and give them a try yourself!
Sweet-Hot Mulberry Jam, from Fiery Foods and Barbeque Supersite
I think it would be pretty great without the chile powder, too!
Mulberry-Orange Muffins, from Pleasant House
These are SO good!  I'm going to make more this week :)
Mulberry Soda, from My Darling Lemon Thyme
Finally, the Mulberry Martini, my own invention :)

In a martini shaker, combine 1 ounce mulberry syrup (from mulberry soda recipe) with 2 ounces ginger vodka over ice.  Shake shake shake, pour into a glass, and top with lemon sparkling water.

Enjoy!

  4. I love all of these! Thanks so much for the jam recipe. I've never attempted my own jam. Is it hard?

    1. This was my first time too! It was pretty easy, just stirring a little and following the directions :). I'd say that my self sealing jars made it especially easy since I didn't have to monkey with sticking jars in boiling water... Simple is best :)
