Gooseberries are hard to come by these days, but they are beloved in cookbooks of old. Both unripened and more mature gooseberries have loads of pectin and a sour flavor, making them perfect for jams, jellies and other confections. Their distinct sourness plays well in savory meat and vegetable dishes as well. Gooseberries make for delicious drinks that wake you up with their bright flavor.
For some, the best way to eat a gooseberry is immediately after picking! When you’re not snacking on raw gooseberries, they can be eaten in sweet and savory dishes, cooked using countless techniques.
