Mulberry Jam

I tried something new this year.  Mulberry Jam. 

I have a white mulberry tree in the yard, that is just starting to produce.  I only got a handful of berries.  The trips and I ate most of them!  But up the street there are two trees of mulberries.  They are on someone's property but some of the branches hang over the road and I am able to pick those!

I ended up getting two pints of jam.  One I put through a sieve and it is seedless.  The other has seeds, but it really is delicious.  I had a few cranberries and strawberries that I threw into the pan, also, so I am happy with my results.  I need to find a free source of mulberries, if anyone knows where one is!
The picture above shows the white mulberries....after the trips got a hold of them....

My inventory of canned jams is rising, albeit slowly.

Gosh, I remember the tree in my neighborhood when I was a kid. Some of us would climb up there and shake the branches into the army blanket that was held below them. Now those are days that I miss ;)
I hope you find another tree! Mulberry jam sounds terrific.
