Ice, Mulberry (P, KLP, TNT)
Yield: 5-1/2 cups

3 cups water
1-1/2 cups sugar
Lemon zest from one lemon, cut in strips
4 ounces fresh ginger, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
4 cups mulberries, fresh
1/4 cup port wine, (or more)
1/4 cup lemon juice, (or more)

Combine water, sugar, lemon zest, and ginger in a heavy saucepan and boil about 5 minutes. Add the mulberries, bring back to the boil, then remove from heat and let cool.

Puree briefly in a food processor or blender, strain, and rub the berries to release all juice. Add 1/4 cup each port and lemon juice and taste. It may need a little more sugar or lemon juice depending on the berries.

Freeze in a churn or an ice cream maker. Garnish with a splash of port or a squeeze of lemon juice when serving.

Poster's Notes:
A few years ago my wife was given a gift of a bag mulberries. She handed them to me and asked if I could make something with them. I found this recipe. We very much enjoyed the resulting ice and we hope to get more mulberries to make this again.
