I never had mulberries as a kid in Holland. In fact I’d never even heard of them. They’re abundant in China, and I buy them every once and a while to have along with some yogurt and muesli.
Mulberries look similar to blackberries, though they are more elongated. On their own they taste sweet and a little earthy. Mulberries definitely put the forest in forest fruit. They’re just a little too earthy for me to have on their own, but mixed with some yogurt really brings out the sweetness.
Unlike blackberries where the whole berry blends into one, each kernel of the mulberry pops in your mouth like caviar releasing its juice. This gives you a bit of an explosion in your mouth.
