  • About


  • 3lb green gooseberries
  • ½ pint water
  • sugar


    Top and tail the gooseberries and simmer them in water until soft. Put through a sieve and weigh the pulp. Allow 12oz sugar to each lb pulp. Stir the sugar until dissolved and bring to the boil. Cook gently, stirring all the time, until the mixture is very thick. Pour into hot jars and cover. Keep for some months before use if possible. This is then very good as a spread; or it can be sliced and eaten with cold meat, particularly lamb.
