I first encountered this dried fruit variety when I saw a colleague munching them and initially thought she was eating grubs. Dried white mulberries aren’t the most appealing with their bumpy texture that resemble an insect cocoon. Nevertheless, once you get past the appearance, they taste pretty incredible.
Dried mulberries are incredibly sweet and have a honey-like taste. It seems like the more you chew on it, the sweeter it becomes. According to nutrient sites, they’re packed full of antioxidants and minerals such as iron.
Currently, I’m addicted to just snacking on them out of the bag but you can also use them in salads, cakes, jams, and smoothies, or simply sprinkle some on your breakfast cereal or yoghurt.
You can purchase dried mulberries from health food stores or organic supermarkets. I get mine from the Turkish market and it costs around 1.50€ for 100 grams.
