Subject: [herb] mulberry

I just found out that the farm we purchased has some mulberry on it. Any suggestions for its use? I've read that the bark and fruit can be used as a food; the fruit especially as a tonic. Ideas?

Here's one *not* to try: don't stand outside picking and eating them before a meeting with any particularly distinguished co-workers. At least not the red ones. If they're white, enjoy!

Mulberry wine is the most delicious of home-made drinks. You can also dry the berries for later use in teas.

Yes, and if you pick more than one or two, you do wind up looking like the guilty party in a horrible murder case ;)
