New Thing #235: Here we go back to apricots
For some reason, I always thought mulberries were fake. They're in the children's song, but there are a lot of things in children's songs--banana phones, diamond rings for babies, stalker lambs that follow you everywhere-- that are hard to find in real life. Mulberries, though, are the real deal. So I ate mulberries. They are not so good. I was expecting something more tart; strawberries, raspberries, cranberries and my beloved blackberries are all packed with punch, even when they're dried. But the mulls tasted like granola dunked in flavored water. I needed a whole glass of organic apple-pear juice just to get the sandy aftertaste out of my mouth.
