Mulberry Pie Recipe

Mulberry Pie

 Today I’m sharing with you the mulberry pie recipe that we’ve been enjoying over the last several weeks as we brought in a wonderfully large harvest of this mildly sweet, nutritious little berry. Mulberries have a very high vitamin C content- 61% of the RDA as well as 23% of the RDA for iron! Not to mention the antioxidants and phytochemicals. That should be a very strong motivator to get yourself and your family to love eating these berries that grow on a tree!

What could be a better way to use mulberries than in a sweet and spicy mulberry pie? You'll look forward to mulberry season every year.

The more acquainted I become with this fruit, the more I marvel at the fact that it is virtually unavailable to most people. Between those nutrition facts, the flavor (both in and out of recipes), as well as the fact that they attract a myriad of backyard birds feeding their newly hatched young, it’s a wonder that it isn’t more popular.

The only thing that I can account for is that mulberries must be prepared or preserved relatively quickly after picking as it will quickly over-ripen. I would think that this tree would be a perfect addition to any backyard orchard.

This simple pie has quickly become a family favorite and will be prepared in our kitchen for many summers to come. It has a wonderful texture, being neither firm nor mushy, and is just as mildly sweet as the berry itself. The addition of vanilla flavored whipped cream made for a perfect dessert.

Or breakfast as the case was once or twice. Just getting a hefty dose of our vitamin C!

If you find yourself with access to mulberries, you really must try this delicious pie!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups mulberries (about a quart), washed & stems removed
  • 1 cup evaporated cane juice, or sugar (Buy cane juice here.)
  • ½ cup flour (I used half all-purpose & half whole wheat)
  • Double Crust Pastry (This is our favorite flakey pie crust )

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, gently mix the prepared berries with sugar and flour until the berries are coated evenly. Set aside while you prepare the pie crust.
  3. When the crust is finished, spoon the berries into the bottom crust and then arrange a latticed top crust.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 and bake for an additional 45 minutes.
  5. Cooling the pie completely before slicing is necessary to avoid a runny pie filling.

  1. I tried cutting the stems off all my berries, but it was the most tedious, time consuming part and I decided to skip it. So I made the pie with stems on. Lol. They basically cook down and you can’t even notice them when you’re eating it. So to anyone who doesn’t have time to snip the stems off, don’t worry about it! 🙂

  2. Hi Quinn, Thanks for the recipe! I’m hoping to locate Mulberries on Southern Vancouver Island B.C. Canada

  3. Hi! Thanks for sharing this great pie recipe. I tried this last weekend for my guests & they loved it.






  4. sounds delicious, how do you easily get the entire stem off of the berries or do you just leave them on ??? Thanks! judy

    1. I leave the stems on. They cook right up with the berries and are just as nutritious!

  5. I’ve gone to great lengths to find mulberries in the urban area where I now live, including asking people I don’t even know if I can pick their tree! I grew up in rural Iowa, where we were blessed with an abundance of purple and white mulberries. This year a friend found a tree and brought me a half gallon, and I can’t wait to make a pie tonight. I use a recipe my mom always used, passed down from her mom, basically like yours but with a crumble topping of butter, brown sugar, and oatmeal. Eating mulberry pie is like the Olympics of pies–doesn’t happen very often but is always a special treat!

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more! It had been two years since we had one (our tree seems to have an off year every other year) and it was well worth the wait. As we look at leaving our mulberry tree behind this year, I’m wondering how soon I can get one planted at the new place or if we’ll be here still when all the little baby mulberry trees start popping up here and there if they produce true to kind and I can just take one of them with me. It would be a longer wait, but the idea has a romantic feel to it 🙂 Glad you found some berries this year!

  6. My Quinn (8 years old 🙂 harvested a hand full today, our 1st this season! We have 4 + mature mulberry trees scattered throughout the shelter belts surrounding our property. Will definitely be trying this recipe and am ALL about serving it for breakfast, lol! I’m also hoping to can some preserves as well and appreciated your mention of freezing in the comments below, great idea for surplus…

    One of my favorite childhood memories is of my Mom taking my little sister & I on a walk to a mulberry tree where we ate our fill & walked away with barefoot purple toes 😉

    I’m gradually making my way through your blog’s content & trying to restrain myself from commenting on everything, lol! You are definitely a kindred spirit 😉

    1. Yea for you! I’m super jealous ;D We had no harvest to speak of last year and this year they’re just hanging on there green as can be while the birds pick them away. Mulberry jelly is also quite delicious. It reminds me of a delicate sweet wine flavor. A very classy jelly. 🙂 I love your memory- what a precious one. I’m sure you’re children will think back one day just as fondly on your mulberry trees. Our branches are hanging so low with their load I don’t expect to find any easy pickings thanks to all the little greedy fingers around here. Feel free to comment as much as you please- whether on new or old posts, they’re always a blessing to me!
