|First I weigh them|
|What I use to clean them|
The first thing I do is clean the mulberries. I use white vinegar and water. I use enough water to over the berries and add about 2-3 tablespoons of vinegar.
|Then into water and cover them|
I put the Mulberries into the water and left them there for about 5-10 minutes. This helps clean and kill anything that is one them.
Then I drain them a little at a time and let them sit for a few minutes. I let them sit because I want as much water off them that I can get.
|Put onto cookie sheet|
After they are drained, I place them on a cookie sheet this lets them freeze and not be stuck together. This helps measure them, or take a few out.
After that they go into a huge freezer bag and will be in our freezer until the weather is cold outside and I have time to make jam. Plus they can be used for smoothies and pies. The aren't stuck together so it will be easy to just take out what is need.
What do you do with your fruit? Do you make jam right away?
