Understated and certainly not the most eye-catching fruit, these tiny berry clusters are rather addictive. Crunchy yet a certain chewiness, their sweet, mild flavour reminiscent of dried fig, dried white mulberries are readily available in ‘health food’ isles and are a great low calories snack at 43 calories per 100g. But, they lend themselves to more than merely snacking, adding crunch to salads, muesli, granola, cakes and cookies. Packed with vitamins A, C & E, along with traces of protein and iron, there are simply too many reasons to include them in our diet, my favourite to sprinkle over natural yogurt or fromage blanc drenched fruit and homemade granola.
