Mulberries are not only delicious freshly picked from a mulberry tree, but they are also wonderful to cook with. In this post, you'll find some must try mulberry recipes, including my personal favorite, mulberry jam!
Mulberries are plump, juicy, sweet, and slightly tart. They are loaded with nutrition and make a wonderful, healthy snack. Besides just plucking them off of the mulberry bush and gorging yourself on them, there are actually so many ways to enjoy them!
For example, have you ever heard of mulberry wine? Yeah, me neither, but it's a thing, and I can't wait to make some! You can also make dried mulberries by dehydrating or freeze-drying mulberries so that you can enjoy them even when they're not in season!

The quick answer is you don't! Mulberries are impossible to pick without their tiny stems staying attached. If you try to pull the stem off, you will end up with a smooshed berry in your hand.
Luckily, you can cook the mulberries along with their stems. If the stem really bothers you, you can just cut the stems off with scissors or clippers. But trust me, it's not necessary!
You can absolutely freeze fresh mulberries! Frozen mulberries can be used in smoothies, milkshakes, adding to baked goods, or to make jam, syrup, wine, or pie.
Mulberries can be eaten straight off the tree or you can try one of the many mulberry recipes out there. For starters, try mulberry jam, mulberry pie, mulberry bread, mulberry muffins, and mulberry juice, just to name a few!
There are 13 growing zones in the U.S. and mulberries grow in 9 of them! If you live anywhere from zone 3 through zone 11, there is a mulberry variety that's right for you. Pakistan, Turkeyi, Shah Reza, Black Beauty, and Wildlife Mulberry Tree are just some of the varieties available! Check with your local nursery to see which is best suited for your area.
Morus alba (white mulberries) are native to Asia. Their leaves are an important source of food for silkworms! Morus rubra (red mulberries) are native to North America and the largest of the genus, growing up to 70 feet high! Morus nigra (black mulberries), are native to Western Asia and said to be the most flavorful mulberries of the 3.
- If you plan on hand-picking mulberries, it's a good idea to bring some rubber gloves with you. Similar to huckleberries, mulberries are infamous for staining hands, clothes, feet, or anything they come in contact with!
- The easiest way to pick a large amount of mulberries is to lay an old sheet under the mulberry tree and shake the tree or branches until the mulberries fall onto the sheet. Then simply gather the sheet's corners and carry your loot to where you will process them.
- Before freezing mulberries, make sure they are thoroughly washed and patted dry with paper towels. Spread the berries in a single layer on a large cookie sheet and freeze for a few hours. This will help to keep them from freezing into a solid block. Once frozen, store them in freezer bags for up to a year!
