The indigo bird crap that streaks our house and the tie-dyed sidewalk mean only one thing — mulberry season!
Mulberries are sweeter, more oblong, and more intense than blackberries. They are pit-less and have a hint of blueberry flavor. I’ve walked past these berries rotting on the ground since I was a kid in St. Louis, but this is the first year I’ve made use of them. Looking down underfoot is the easiest way to locate a mulberry tree at peak picking season.
