   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      c             water
    1 1/2  c             sugar
    1                    zest of 1 lemon -- cut in strips
    4      ozs           fresh ginger (about 1/2 cup) -- thinly sliced
    4      c             fresh mulberries
      1/4  c             port wine -- (or more)
      1/4  c             lemon juice -- (or more)
 
 Combine water, sugar, lemon zest, and ginger in a heavy saucepan and boil about 5
minutes.  Add the mulberries, bring back to the boil, then remove from heat and
let cool.  Puree briefly in a food processor or blender, strain, and rub  the
berries to release all juice.  Add 1/4 cup each port and lemon juice and taste. 
It may need a little more sugar or lemon juice depending on the berries.  Freeze
in a churn or an ice cream maker.  Garnish with a splash of port or a squeeze of
lemon juice when serving.
 
 Yields 5 1/2 cups.
