Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
After discovering a mulberry tree in our yard, I have pounds of mulberries that need a use. There is only so much jam you can make and eat. One alternative to using up these berries is homemade berry syrup.
This simple syrup and packed with seasonal sweet flavor and can be used for cocktails, drizzled over ice cream or your favorite breakfast pancakes!
