    Twelve pounds of European Gooseberry were picked from one bush and processed into 7 liters of pressure canned juice at 15 PSI for 15 minutes. One liter was set aside for immediate use. The juice is slightly tart but still a pleasant beverage. The berries were easy to pick. since they are relatively large and in clumps along the branch. The bushes have strong long thorns, hence the use of gloves. Pictures depict the process.

    We do not grow them, but there are bushes growing in the hedgerow along the lane. I picked 3 pounds the other day which is just enough to make the amount of Chutney we need for a year. Sadly as fruit they play havoc with my gout so long gone are the days of Gooseberry Fool.
