My Mulberry's Cordial

About: for the development of instructables I had the invaluable help of my 9 year old daughter for taking images ...

Each year our weeping mulberry gives many fruits in April. I thought it's a shame not to take advantage of these delicious berries and syrups and soft drinks to have during the summer.
