Brooklyn, NY. The Morus trees are heavy with berries right now, and if you’re lucky the tree nearest you is bearing ripe fruit. Mulberries make a great jam as I discovered yesterday, foisting some mulberry-balsamic preserves on friends who fawned over it with loving remarks.
I recently appeared on WNYC’s “All Things Considered” with Amy Eddings talking about the abundance of mulberries throughout the city. You can listen to our discussion here.
