My Mom's Mulberry Pie

My Mom's Mulberry Pie

A sweet fruity pie made with mulberries and a little lemon


3 pies


3 quarts (12 cups) ripe mulberries, washed and drained
1 cup sugar
dash salt
1 large lemon
1 cup water
1/3 cup clear gel/Sure Jel
1/2 cup cold water
Pie crust (unbaked) -- we use this foolproof pie crust recipe


1. Wash the lemon (but don't peel), and thinly slice it. Remove seeds and chop.

2. Put mulberries in a large stock pot. Add 1 cup sugar and a dash of salt. Add the chopped lemon and one cup of water. Heat to boiling.

3. Dissolve 1/3 cup clear gel in 1/2 cup cold water and add to boiling mixture, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

4. Line pie dishes with pie crust. Pour in pie filling. Place top crust on pies (be sure to have some holes in the top crust for steam to escape!), sealing edges with a little water before fluting. Sprinkle tops with sugar if desired.

5. Bake pies at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, until crust is browned.

Additional Notes: 

This is a recipe for mulberry pie created by my mom, Linda.

The lemon adds some tartness to balance out the sweet mulberries. We always use mulberries that are black -- completely ripe.

This pie is not too sweet, very tasty, and if you have a mulberry tree/bush nearby, the fruit is free! :)

Preparation Time: 

25 minutes

Cooking Time: 

30 minutes


I just made this pie today with the fresh mulberry's from our neighbor's tree. It tastes fantastic! I didn't have enough berries to do all three pies so I just did a 1/3 of the recipe. One problem though, it didn't set up. It's very runny, I'm okay with that though. I'm hoping that maybe putting it in the fridge will thicken it a little bit. I'm guessing either I used too much water with the gel, or I didn't let it cook long enough before pouring it in the crust. I definitely will make this again!!
