Mulberries are a primitive type of fruit that have not been improved by horticulturists in the same way as other fruits. Silkworms are reared on mulberry leaves as they will eat nothing else and, with the trees scattered throughout Egypt, the sight of schoolchildren feeding pet silkworms mulberry leaves is strangely not unusual. The fruit has a distinctively sweet taste that contrasts nicely with the yogurt, both in taste and appearance. Spoon the recipe into a clear glass to show the layers. This makes a great breakfast dish when mulberries are in season or a refreshingly light dessert after a heavy meal.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g mulberries
2 tablespoons sugar
300g natural yogurt
slivered almonds, to garnish
mint leaves, (optional), to garnish

Method

  1. In a small saucepan over a low heat, heat 50 ml water with the mulberries and sugar, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Set aside and let cool for at least half an hour.
  2. Spoon some mulberry preserve into the bottom of a glass, followed by enough yogurt to come halfway up the height of the glass. Repeat the mulberry layer and finish with yogurt.
  3. Serve chilled with slivered almonds and mint leaves, if using, to garnish.
