Magical Mulberries

New-found foods in Africa, continued...  sorry- forgot to post this yesterday!

Though mulberries are anything but a new-found food to us, the abundance of mulberries throughout September inspired me to add them to our list.  Mulberries in Africa are enormous- a whole different beast than in the US.  And they are everywhere.  Most yards have at least one mulberry tree, and despite being everywhere, mulberries are hard to harvest and seldomly seen in a product on a shelf.  We took advantage of the school's giant mulberry tree near Kurt's classroom to make some delicious mulberry syrup- a real treat!
