Gooseberry

From
Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery

A summer fruit that can have red, yellow or green berries that are either sweet or tart. Gooseberries are grown in cool climates and are widely used in the northern countries of Europe. In English home-cooking, gooseberries are used in tarts, desserts, jams, jellies and sauces, or poached in syrup flavoured with elderflower. Gooseberry sauce is traditionally served with mackerel, but is good with any oily-fleshed fish, and with roast duck or roast pork. Gooseberry Fool is also a delicious favourite for dessert.

If you cannot buy or grow fresh gooseberries, tinned or frozen ones can be used for tart fillings, sauces and fools.
