Aside all that bickering.
I will try to start a new thread. Let see who fast it going to be merged with something that has little to do with the topic.

What you can say about mulberry trees?
In a place I grew up there were mulberry trees. Whilst I gorged myself on its fruit it never occurred to me at the time that those trees are quite rare in Poland. Am I right about it?

What about your experiences with mulberry trees?

I have one on my property.
Do you make Mulberry jam out of the Berries like I do sometimes ?
The birds in the fall usually get the most of them and get drunk on them.

Not really. I tried to make a wine of those berries with a limited success. I might try this year to do it properly.

I had to google it (never heard of it before in English) and can't remember seeing it.

@Ironside
You can even make wine out of them?!
I got a lot to learn about winemaking (it's a future thing I'll dedicate my time to when I'll be able to)

Have you had a lot of experience with it? (Winemaking)

@johnny_reb
Huh, jam aswell. You use sugar or something else? (Hoping for non-sugar here)

I have had Mulbery wine but have never made it.
Very pleasant.
Any wine that I have made like grape, strawberry and peach take a lot of sugar.
In fact I don't know how you could make wine without sugar as it helps with the fermentation of the fruit.
The more sugar the bigger hang over.
Yes I use sugar in making the jam.
At my stage of life, sugar is the last thing I have to worry about.

I just know of different fermentation's processes (one that doesn't require sugar as an ingredient)
In case of pickles (kiszone ogórki) it's without sugar .
How excactly it's done remains a mystery to me. I just need to research it a lot more.
I remember seeing a video about it, but forgot it's content (how to do it etc) so I'll have to look it up.

Discovering the unhealthy consequences of sugar I avoid it as much as possible. That includes alcohol, although when I am in the shape I want. I can imagine a sip or two (wine), just preferably one with low content of suger

You can mush them into a paste, spread the paste out thinly, dry it slowly and cut up into very nice sweets. Dried, they're also a good alternative to raisins.

They make decent pies but unfortunately have a lot of pollen.

You'd definitely need sugar.

You could add honey.

Have you had a lot of experience with it?

Some.

Someone I know just uses grapes, however Mulberry is too acidic. It definitely needs sugar.

Some add resins or razzberries on the top of a sugar.

I would do that. (and that guy's wine would benefit from it). Adding yeast too.

Bush? We are talking trees here. Has Yorkshire any mulberry trees?

Some, though they have to be grown in sheltered places.

Bush?

Sounds better in the song. Plus, they have lots of little ones for silk worms.
