They are one of our favorite berries….the gooseberry. It is absolutely delicious and tastes like no other berry! Their reputation suffers from the thorny bushes they grow on, but just get on your gloves and start picking – it will be all worth it. Fresh gooseberries are said to improve skin tone and restore hair loss. They also boost your blood regeneration and slow down the aging process! It is a total win win! Gooseberries make a great jam too. Here is one of our favorite gooseberry jam recipe:
500 grams gooseberries
300 grams of jam sugar or cane sugar
1/2 vanilla pod
Juice from one fourth of a lemon
Approximately ½ – 1 dl of Water
Boil the berries with the water and lemon juice for 5 minutes. Pour the rest of the ingredients into the pan and boil it while stirring for about 10-12 minutes until the jam has thickened. Pour the jam in to sterilized jars!
