Gooseberries

Oh, gooseberries....where have you been all my life!?!

  1. I was talking to a friend the other day about home grown fruit. She said how she noticed when she left home for university that there were so many fruits that she was used to eating that she couldn't get any more because shops didn't sell them. Really ordinary fruit like gooseberries, rhubarb, red and black currants. Fruit we all grow and take for granted. Having said that, we have too many gooseberry bushes. My husband got a bit overenthusiastic!

    1. Matt refuses to purchase strawberries at the grocery store. They are just wasting money after one has eaten a homegrown berry. There is no comparison. Matt folk's have a gooseberry bush and so kindly share their bounty with me in the form of jelly, syrup, and pie. I'd never eaten one until maybe 2012 or 2011. I suppose too much of anything can start to have its downside, but too many goose berries?!? :) Ah, sometimes it can be hard to check that enthusiasm, can't it?
