can anyone tell me if there is a quick way to remove the stalks from mulberries or is the stalk edible? they are quite time consuming to pick and then again to remove the stalks.

What are you using them for, Jen? If you're making jelly, don't worry about the stems. In a pot, pour enough water over the berries just to cover. Boil until they break down, and run through food mill. Then you'll have juice for your jelly.

We get by with a little help from our friends

I just love me some Mulberries Pie, with a hint of sugar on the top and some side ice cream ! LETS EAT !
If you need a smile, take mine, I'll make a new one.

Stems are fine if you are eating them.

The only time I ever had mulberries, they were so full of seeds that I couldn't stand them. I don't even like to eat blackberries that often because of the seeds (I love blackberries for their flavor though). I'm very strange about seeds!

I'm with ya, Barb. Mulberry trees and blackberry bushes are EVERYWHERE around here and although I love the flavor, I hate picking the danged seeds out of my teeth.
