Mulberry picking and the treats that followed

We were really sad because a few years ago, someone from the city came around with a gigantic commercial vertical lawnmower and destroyed our secret spot that was full of mulberry trees.  A little while back, I was running and happened to encounter a spot where hundreds of perfectly sweet and ripe mulberries had rained down.  I ran home and came back with the reinforcements.  The rest of the day went to making delicious treats...

First I made a mulberry apple pie.  That was gobbled up.  

Next, I made a streusel topping... 

Then I made a mulberry syrup...

Then I made a cooked custard ice cream and folded the streusel and syrup in.  Oh my freaking yum.  So good.  But so labor intensive.  That might have been a one time deal.  

I also made a mulberry cobbler for the next morning's breakfast.  

 Finally, I made myself a little concoction of mulberry syrup, sparkling water, Tanqueray, and lime. Twas a fine day.


  1. The many faces of mulberries, in your hands, transcend delicious. This is a fruit, like medlar, that I have heard of but never encountered. They look a lot like raspberries in that first picture.

  2. I am salivating now, so thanks, Wendy;)
    I agree that the ice cream thing might be a bit too labor intensive, though...

  3. Wow, that ice cream! What a deliciciously awesome idea!!

  4. That's a lot of mulberries! What is the secret? Mine only produce 7-8 small berries at time....sigh....


My awesome gardening friends...thanks for leaving a comment! I don't typically repond here, but I love knowing who you are so I can visit your blog as well.

btw - if you're trying to show me nude Miley Cyrus photos, sell me nikes or viagra or antibiotics, or encourage my lovely garden readers to visit your site on solar panel construction, or seo-whatevers, sorry, but I'm not publishing your comment. If you want to moderate my blog - well, I can't keep you too busy, and the pay would be horrible. And lastly, no. I'm not interested in Club Penguin cheat codes. Thanks anyway.
