mulberry season

If we had a mulberry tree (and indeed, Alice grew up with one, although apparently squirrels and birds ate the berries, rather than humans) - if we had a mulberry tree, I'd doubtless have cooked with them before, rather than thinking of them as either a delightfully archaic foodstuff, or else producing berries that stain everything in sight.  But yesterday, at the Farmers' Market, at one of the smallest stalls, an elderly lady was selling a couple of punnets of back-yard mulberries.  So here's the result - a completely delicious mulberry crumble - the first time, I think, that I've ever put them to practical use.
