Gooseberries - Sharp As Ever.

The warm spring weather has produced an abundant crop of gooseberries. The problem is that nobody in our family seems to like them and even the birds leave them alone. They are sharp as ever on all fronts. Acidic to taste and devils to pick, as the thorns are always out to spear you and draw blood.

We have tried all the usual recipes - Tarts, Fools, Pies, Cakes and Ice Cream. This year it will have to be Jam. We will use it to flavour yogurt. I can't say that I am enthusiastic of this gastronomic experience in prospect, but I am determined not to waste the goosegogs.
