Mulberries!

A lady in my neighborhood has a couple huge mulberries trees that drop an incredible amount of white mulberries during June and July. Her neighbors complain that she doesn't clean up after it so she said anyone who helps sweep the sidewalk can have all the mulberries they want. I figured I'd give it a try and I collected all these mulberries. They look pretty gross don't they? Like albino blackberries. Or caterpillar parts. Too bad it turns out they don't have any particular taste. So I mixed them with some cherries and blueberries and made this berry crisp. It was good, but the mulberries didn't add much besides volume. Picking them and meeting the mulberry lady was an interesting experience though!

Mulberries... interesting. Do they eat those in China? Where did you get the crisp recipe from?
