Mulberry Vinaigrette

Compared to other berries, mulberries don’t have a very strong flavor. Their taste is similar to a mild-flavored blackberry. However, this makes them very versatile when cooking. Use them just as you would any other berry – in pies, jams, cobblers, oatmeal, breads, smoothies, etc. Mulberries can also be used in savory dishes. Simmered down and strained, mulberry juice is a great sauce for steak or it could be used in a vinaigrette for salad.
