  • 50g caster sugar

  • 175g flour

  • 450g gooseberries

  • 75g granulated sugar

  • 2 tbsp strawberry jam

  • 75g butter


  1. Top and tail gooseberries, add one tbsp of water and 75g granulated sugar and cook over a very low heat until the fruit begins to soften (about 10mins), once cooked take off the heat and leave to cool.
  2. Make crumble topping in the traditional way by rubbing flour and butter together until the breadcrumb stage and then add the caster sugar.
  3. Mix jam into the gooseberries and place in an oven proof dish. Then sprinkle over the crumble mixture.
  4. Cook at 180C for about 45 mins, and the crumble should be nice and golden on top. Serve with custard or ice cream and enjoy.

Handy Hint

I reduced the amount of granulated sugar to cook with the gooseberries as I was adding the strawberry jam which also contains sugar, but if the fruit is quite sharp to start off with then you may need to add more sugar.
