  1. You can use this recipe for any low pectin fruit eg.
  2. Saskatoons, blueberry, elderberry, raspberry, blackberry or May-apple.
  3. Cook 1 1/2 cups of RIPE mulberries[unripe fruit is toxic- see about Red mulberry], mash and drain through a fine sieve or jelly bag to obtain the juice: about 2/3 cup yield.

  6. Remove from heat; cool until lukewarm and beat with a wooden spoon until mixture looses its gloss.

  8. Keep in a tightly covered dish or freeze because this candy hardens when exposed to the air.
