I would like to try any recipes.
Please put what gooseberry you put in the pie.
I just make a gooseberry pie like i make any berry pie, I mix sugar and flour and mix with the berrys in an unbaked pie shell and top with another crust, cut holes and bake!
How much sugar and flour depends on how sweet the berries are how juich, fresh or frozen, how big a pie I am making etc.
I have eaten a gooseberry pie made like a rhubarb cream pie, with egg yolks mixed with the sugar, but never made one.

Please send me a slice!! I can't get gooseberries here - Cape Gooseberries, I mean. I did have some seeds, and grew a plant or two, but it vanished when somebody came to help me in the garden - and thought they were weeds!! I never had enough to make a pie with, though. Not even a small one. Sob.
