In season now, cheap and versatile. We made gooseberry and elderflower sorbet at the weekend just the ticket for weather like this, gooseberry and strawberry jam tomorrow

Gooseberry and mustard seed pickle with a bit of heat here this week if the gooseberries are ready. I doubt they're far off.

Thank you, I shall look forward to it. Is it nice and sharp? Not that keen on sweet pickles and chutneys.

Yes, not a sweet pickle, very savoury with good heat.

Again: Yum. I do a one-crust pie with the pastry just sort of bundled up around the fruit.
