I went to our local Turkish ethnic shop today to buy dips and stuff. They also sell these three cup boxes of dried mulberries. I'd never eaten mulberries before, so I decided to buy some. Right out of the box, they tasted kind of like raisins, but I've now soaked them in some water and they have a lovely honey flavor (without actually containing honey, obviously). I'm thinking of using them in baked goods. So, what do you think I should do with 'm?

You could try a very traditional (and naturally vegan) Turkish dessert called aşure (ah-shoo-reh). These two recipes look pretty authentic, only they don't actually contain the dried mulberry. But mulberry is a traditional part of aşure, so just add in a handful or more of mulberries when you add the other fruit.

That aşure stuff looks interesting and delicious. Don't think I've ever eaten whole beans in a desert before! I'll need to wait for a big family gathering before making this though, cause it doesn't look easy to do in small amounts. The holidays are coming up, so maybe I'll make it for Xmas or New Year.

It's definitely a traditional holiday dessert and most families will make enough to feed the whole neighborhood :)

I like to call it the kitchen sink pudding, because it literally is like someone took a handful of everything in the pantry and cooked it all together.

Oh nice. Mulberries were pretty common when I was growing up, and I don't think I'd ever made the connection to Turkish cuisine — think I'll try that aşure too.
