Mulberry Muffins

July 11, 2013

We have been living in our house for about 5 years.  Just this summer, we (by this, I mean my husband) discovered 2 mulberry trees and about 5 raspberry bushes on our property..pretty nice, right?  The raspberry bushes are sorta buried in a mass of other bushes in a wooden area and don't get alot of sun, so, they aren't getting very big.  But, the mulberry trees are doing pretty well.  Enter some muffins.  

I admit, at first, picking random fruit from my yard and baking with it was a concern.  However, after doing some research (OK.. I googled them) and talking with a local merchant at our farmers market, I figured..what the heck?

These muffins are really tasty. It's a pretty basic recipe..a little work could be used to snazz them up a bit. The berries though? Delicious.  A little tart and not as sweet as other berries.  A small sprinkle of sugar gives them a tiny boost.  You do have to be a bit careful, as, they will stain your hands when you handle them!

A nice little breakfast or snack.
