It's mulberry season (at least at my house) and before it's over I want to give you the results of a few experiments we tried recently with mulberries.
The first was fresh mulberry green tea. I took about a teaspoon of fresh mulberries, a teaspoon of green tea, muddled the mulberries in with the tea, and cold brewed it overnight in the fridge.

6 tablespoons butter straight from the fridge
2/3 cup milk
