This rich and vibrantly flavored berry is at the market for only a few weeks out of the year and sold by 2 farmers for close to $20/pint. The edible fruit is a compound cluster of, what seems to be, deep flavored juice, as they literally fall apart almost immediately off the vine. This makes the berries very challenging to pick, especially in large quantities.
Persian Mulberries must be consumed within 36 hours of picking. We get these berries the same day, from Bettina Birch, and we immediately preserve them.
This is the most expensive and exciting jam we make, hence, the huge Sticker. Jam Bling.
