Glorious Gooseberries

August 2, 2012

Gooseberries are often overlooked and overshadowed by that other, rather famous summer fruit, the strawberry. Although you could say the Gooseberry is ugly in comparison to it’s pretty red counterpart, these hairy green berries are actually rather delicious when prepared the right way.

Gooseberries have a sharp, sweet tang which works perfectly with a summer pudding or savoury sauce. Why not get a bit adventurous and give them a try? Here are some of our favourite recipes –
