This mulberry syrup is made from FRESH mulberries. It will not work exactly the same if you're starting with dried mulberries.

Sadly, mulberries are only in season one time per year, and they don't last long enough to be sold in most grocery stores.

What you'll need to make mulberry syrup:

To make mulberry syrup, you'll need fresh mulberries, sugar, water, and a few things from your kitchen:

  • A blender, or a small food processor. A personal blender would work too. This is to blend up the mulberries to release their juice. I have a blendtec blender (this one here) and I absolutely LOVE it.
  • A fine mesh strainer (such as this one). This is to strain the mulberry juice and get the pulp out for a smooth syrup.
  • A spatula (like these here). This is to help push all the mulberry juice through the mesh strainer.
  • A small sauce pan. This is to make the actual syrup.
  • A mason jar. To store the syrup.

How long does homemade syrup last?

This mulberry syrup lasted for 2 months in my fridge in a small glass mason jar. It might have lasted longer, but we used it all up!

Make sure the glass jar you use is clean to ensure there is no bacteria being introduced into the syrup before pouring the mulberry syrup into the jar.

If you see any while fuzzy mold growing on the syrup, throw it out. Otherwise, it will be good!

  • 2 cups fresh mulberries
  • ¾ cup sugar


  • Process the fresh mulberries in a blender, a food processor, or a personal blender for a few seconds, or until the berries are totally pulverized. Strain the juice through a mesh strainer into a bowl or directly into a small saucepan. Use a spatula to help you push the juice through the strainer. (You will have about 1 cup of juice and about ¼ cup to ⅓ cup pulp remaining). 
  • Add ¾ cup sugar to the mulberry juice in the saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring once in a while, or until the syrup just starts to bubble. Remove from heat. Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
