This is a jam recipe was given to me by my mother in law. She made it every year and would send us a pint because we could not get gooseberries where we lived.

Directions

  1. Remove blossom and stem ends from gooseberries. Force berries through food mill. Measure 4 cups of the berry mash into a large pot. Stir in the sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in pectin at once. Skim off any foam with a large metal spoon.
  2. Sterilize jars and lids in boiling water for at least 10 minutes. Take turns with skimming foam, and stirring the berry mixture for 5 minutes to let it cool slightly. Ladle into hot sterile jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
  3. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

Delicious! I'd never tasted a gooseberry before, and wasn't sure what to expect. My jam turned out great, perfect sweet/tart combo, and such a beautiful color. My family loves it too!

Not having a food mill, I crushed my berries in a food processor on "chop". Nice texture, good jam consistency, delicious!
