We are excited to have our first batch of Gooseberries, giving even more seasonal fruit for you to choose from.
The gooseberry is often seen as a funny old thing. It can sometimes be a little tart, and sadly it has fallen out of favour in recent years, as cooks seem to favour brighter crumble contenders, such as raspberries and blackcurrants, or so the professionals tell us.
This is a shame, because with a little love and imagination, gooseberries can make delicious additions to both sweet and savoury dishes.
How about Gooseberry Crumble, Gooseberry Fool, Gooseberry and Elderflower Jam (one of my favourites) Add it with Elderflower to flavour Gin, create pies, tarts and one I love the sound of Gooseberry Pavlova – the ideas are endless.
The gooseberries, like much of the seasonal fruit have a short season, so do make the most of them now!
Feel free to add it to you order https://www.clanfieldgreengrocers.co.uk/how-to-order/ or pop down to pick some up this weekend.
