    Mulberries and Apricot Kernels and ???

    Shop Now
    I visited a friend over the weekend who gave me some white mulberries to munch on. I've never had them before, but they were quite delicious.

    And I also got some apricot kernels. Those are totally awesome as well.

    I also ate some small raisin-like fruit but he didn't know what they were called. They were like tiny raisins with stems and they tasted kind of raisin like.

    You should add these to your primal shopping list!

    Just make sure they aren't raw-unsoaked apricot kernels, they contain amygdalin, which essentially turns into cyanide in your gut.

    Just like acorns, they need to be soaked in several changes of water before they are consumed. I assume if you are purchasing them pre-packaged, the soaking has been done for you (the FDA might have a fit otherwise)...just don't go cracking raw pits and chomping seeds by the handful, you may end up with more than a tummy ache.

    Were they dried mulberries? I've been eating them lately, addictive. They're really bumpy and many have tiny stems which you can eat but I snap them off.

    I like white mulberries, but I don't find them as flavorful as the red ones. I've never seen them for sale though. I just pick them straight off the trees - they're considered a nuisance around here!

    Me too! We still have a month or so until they start showing up around here.
