We discovered a mulberry tree near our house along the creek. They are sweet little berries that grow on a tree almost resembling the look of a small blackberry. They’re rich in vitamins and antioxidants and have many health benefits to them.
We easily picked three cups of berries and stained our hands. 😄
3 cups mulberries
3/4 cup sugar (or 1 cup if you would like it on the sweeter side)
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup flour
Slight squeeze of lemon
1 tablespoon butter
Prepared double crust
In a bowl, combine the washed and dried mulberries with sugar, salt, flour, and vanilla. Mix until combined trying not to break up the berries too much.
Place into prepared crust and squeeze just a bit of lemon juice on the top. Add bits of butter evenly over the top.
Now it’s time for the top crust. You can easily use a simple crust or make a lattice. Reference pictures below for lattice crust.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes until filling is bubbly and crust is golden.
Cool and refrigerate until well chilled.
Basically create a hashtag, making sure each piece alternates going over and under the others. Keep adding out from there.
And the finished product. Enjoy!
