This is a basic recipe that can be used with all berries and has no (white) sugar as it is sweetened with honey.
I recommend making a big batch on a sunday and having it for the week in the fridge for breakfasts and snack toppings.
No sugar mulberry topping is sweetened with honey and is the perfect topping for plain yogurt.
Beats the chemicals in store bought flavored yogurt!
So it’s mulberry time in spain and man are there alot, I know this because my 70 year old neighbour on the mountain “Rosa Maria” has a tree (yep a mulberry tree) who knew !
Maria Literally grows everything you can imagine and loves to share with me and our first spring ripe fruit is the mulberries.
So when I arrived home yesterday I had a bucket of fresh berries waiting, they still had stems which means they are quite tart as not fully ripe yet (got to get them before the birds)
I figured I better make a berry sauce for my greek yogurt and coconut ice cream, (by the time I finished destemming them I looked like barney)!
These little babies stain so wear gloves if you are going out in the next 2 days!
