Organic Hunza Mulberries

The wonderful mulberry. I can't recall on which blog I first read of these little treats, but the writer raved about them. The next time I made it to the market, I decided to pick up a bag. They're dried fruits, about the size of raisins. In fact, both of my daughters insist they taste just like raisins. But I don't like raisins, and I loved these tiny treasures! At $4.69 for a 4 ounce bag, I found myself rationing them out--a sprinkle in my breakfast granola, a small handful grabbed on my way out the door. Alas, I'm finishing the bag as I write this.

The wonderful mulberry: great flavor, high nutritional value.
