Making a memory

I remember as a child going to the row of mulberry trees that lined the lane to Grandads pasture and picking the wonderful fruit that they bore. I loved mulberrys until someone older informed me that they had bugs in them. I should have know that to eat them was okay though as my grandmother would pick them and make a delicious cobbler or just serve them with sugar and cream for desert for lunch.

Last evening, Logan, Paula and I went to our own mulberry trees and picked mulberrys. The hot winds have dried many of them and the have not all ripened but we did pick about four cups with a few black currents added. I decided that I would try making my grandmothers cobbler. We washed and washed to currents (just in case there were bugs)

Aiden helped make the cobbler and I forgot to take his picture. He loves to cook.

Just add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.....

YUM!!!!!! Grandma was right wasn't she Logan?

yummm. You must have young children when picking mulberries since it takes a lot!

Yummy! Did you think to put a sheet under it and shake the tree? That's what Dad said was the best way.
