I have three little gooseberry bushes in my back yard and I love to spend a sunny afternoon picking and cleaning the berries in my backyard. This small bowl is just the beginning and perhaps this year my birds will enjoy more of them then I will, we'll have to see! I remember my grandma Mabel had gooseberries and I believe she made pies, I've only made jam. Tastes pretty good on toast come winter! They are good raw and just tonight I put some in my fruit smoothie, yum!
