11 Apr Mulberry Cookies
As I kid I can remember riding to town with my grandparents while they sang “Round and Round the Mulberry Bush”. Thus, I’ve known about mulberries since a very young age, but only recently had the opportunity to try them. Being that I’m always on the lookout for new varieties of foods to add to our diet, when I saw a sale on unsweetened dried white Mulberries at a local store, well I snagged them right up (6 bags worth to be exact). Turns out these little gems are an excellent source of vitamin C and iron, in addition to calcium and antioxidants. They are really yummy and make a pretty tasty little cookie too! You can buy them on Amazon (heres a link) and find mulberries at many natural grocery stores. You can also use things like goji berries and even unsweetened cherries if you’d like in place of mulberries for this recipe. Enjoy!
