Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush!

So early in the morning

Mulberries! Just when everyone thought mulberry season is over, there is now an abundance of mulberries. The children here in the MSC Green Campus in San Gabriel, the MSC students, teachers, staff and guests, the MATH-Inic children, they all love mulberries. It’s a happy sight, a happy food, a super food. 🙂

We felt bad for the trees after Typhoon Glenda hit the city. The branches were broken and the leaves were crushed (much like what happens when you use your mortar and pestle to get juice out of your leaves). Surprise! After about 2 weeks, the mulberry trees have recovered. They now have brand new leaves and mulberries in different degrees of ripeness.

How many of you have tried/ tasted mulberries? They’re highly perishable so you probably won’t see them in groceries.

Anyway, if you have access to mulberries, you can try eating straight from the tree. That’s the best way to get your dose of mulberry, in my opinion at least. You can also make jam, jelly, and syrup out of mulberries. You can juice them, too. 🙂 So far, we’ve only tried eating them fresh and juicing them.

So, yes, my no. 1 source of antioxidants these days are mulberries.

Happy Mulberry Season! 🙂

Note: Mulberries are not berries, botanically speaking. I believe they are multiple fruits. It means that a mulberry fruit developed from an inflorescence, from many ovaries of many flowers. 😀
