Mulberry Ice
from the childhood kitchen of Sharmagne Leland-St.John

Crush and strain out the juice of mulberries
before preparing the ice.

Fill the glasses 2/3 full with shaved ice.
Pour over this 4 tablespoons mulberry juice.
Add 1 tablespoon sugar to each glass and
serve immediately.

You will most likely find mulberries
in residential neighbourhoods, in parks,
or fields, especially along the edges, in
open woods, and near fresh water. They
grow throughout the country, ripening
in late spring and early summer.

Editor's Note: Children should only pick
berries with parental guidance. Not all
berries are edible some are POISON!

This is a recipe I learned from my grandmother
Josephine, grandaughter of Chief Que Que Tas
(kwi kwi tas k't') of the San Poil band of
the Confederated Colville Tribe of Nespelem
