Ingredients: Directions:
How to Recognize: The only mulberry native to Canada, it is a
shorttrunked deciduous tree under 30 feet in height. The bark is
reddish brown, separating in long, flaky plates. The yellowish green
leaf blades are large, up to 5" long, widest below the middle and have
hairy undersides. They are simple with pointed tips and the stems are
long with 3 prominent veins at the base of each leaf. Male and female
flowers are borne in separate clusters appearing with or before the
first leaves. The fruits are dark red to black compact aggregates
which resemble blackberries. White mulberry is an Asian tree whose
foliage is used for silkworm feed and has been introduced as an
ornamental and is an escapee throughout eastern North America. It has
lustrous smooth leaves and whitish or reddish fruit. Where to Find:
Southernmost Ontario in moist, rich soils often mixed with other
hardwoods. How to Use: Harvest easily by spreading sheets under the
tree and shaking the branches gently. Juicy and sweet when ripe;
delicious raw, in fruit beverages, or in baked desserts. Alone or in
combination with acid fruits such as gooseberries or cherries. Can be
frozen or dried like raisins. Use as in blackberry and raspberry
recipes. WARNING: Be careful not to eat raw fruit before it is ripe.
Unripe fruit and the milky sap in the leaves and stems are toxic and
can cause gastric upsets. The leaves and stems may also cause
dermatitis if touched by susceptible individuals. From: Edible Wild
