Oh my goodness, it’s that time of the year where you start seeing berries everywhere! Although my strawberry plants are done for this month here in Wilmington, Ohio, I can now turn to the wild mulberries along the wood line. But… what do we really know about mulberries other than you can eat them?
They are a great source of vitamin C, iron, vitamin K1, potassium, vitamin E and protein! Not to mention super tasty!
Not only do the lower your cholesterol, improve blood sugar control and reduce your risk of cancer, they have been used in by Chinese herbal medicine to treat diseases like heart disease, diabetes, anemia and arthritis. Mulberry trees are also non toxic to dogs, cats and horses so you can share.
Although this sweet treat does stain your fingers and clothing, it’s definitely a treat that one of our favorites to pick together as a family!
