Gooseberry Jam recipe
We had 2 kg of gooseberries which I put 1 cup of water with and simmered until soft.
Then I measured out 3 cups of the gooseberries into another pot. To that I added 3 cups of sugar and then simmered for 10 minutes and put in jars that had been sterilising in boiling water.
That made a jar of jam for every family camping.
The leftover gooseberries I put 1/2 that amount of sugar with and we had a gooseberry sauce. We had that with scones and cream and the next day made gooseberry fool. Yummy yum yum.
