I have had the good fortune to fall into (not literally, as they have thorns and it would make me cry) about 8 cups of gooseberries!  I have never worked with them before, but I would like to make something (or things) with them - jam?  jelly?  pie?

Do you have any gooseberry advice for me?  Recipes?  I will invite you all over for dessert!

(She says, confident in the fact that no one will show up and she will not have to share....)


  1. Gooseberry jam would be the sensible thing to do. For sheer delight go for gooseberry fool. I'll post the recipe on my website.

  2. i love to eat gooseberries right off the bush. gooseberry jam is good too.

  3. I have no advice or suggestions to give you as I don't think I've ever even tasted a gooseberry. But I'll be waiting with bated (gooseberry) breath to see what you come up with!

  4. I've never worked with gooseberries, but I bet jam, or pie would be good.

  5. My parents used to make gooseberry wine.......not that I ever tasted it!
