The ten million (well nearly) gooseberries that are currently growing on mtp are nearly ripe. I thinned them out about two weeks ago (as per allotment bible) and they’re growing fat day by day. There seems to be two varieties (green and red) – do they taste differently? I must confess I’ve never tasted gooseberries in the raw (I must have had some kind of dessert containing a percentage of gooseberries at one point in my 32 years). I’m looking forward to my first natural gooseberry experience. Anyone have any recipes they can share with me? All I have is gooseberry fool and tart up to now – not very adventurous. I need some recipes that use ‘tons’ of gooseberries because I have ‘tons’ of gooseberries. Jam anyone?
