I've just picked 3 1/2 llbs of gooseberries from the one bush in our front garden. My poor hands, those thorns are the devil's work itself!

How do pigeons manage to strip a whole bush by themselves without being impaled?!

mmm gooseberry jam tomorrow methinks

I sympathise...I am covered in sratches off ours! I havent weighed them yet but got two big bowl fulls. Planning on freezing most for crumble but also making this which we've made 3 times now and it is just gorgeous. Not good for my waistline though!

smile it really is yummy. We have used half the butter stated every time and its been lovely, not sure what difference adding the full amount would make. I just couldn't bring myself to use a whole tub!
