The Queen of Berries
Today I picked my first crop of gooseberries...

This morning, on the bush...


Harvest Home! Here is the entire 2013 crop...


It wasn't enough for a proper gooseberry updside-down pudding, but it occurred to me that I could make a batch of small ones...


Cooked, but not yet upside-down:


Pleasingly inverted:


They tasted excellent. Next year, I hope for a larger-scale operation on the same lines:


I shall spare you tomorrow's dissection of the stools in pursuit of undigested gooseberry seeds, but feel free to imagine it over your civet coffee.

I've never eaten gooseberries, but these look very tasty.

They are, but very tart (at least the way I like them), so have to be offset by something sweet - in this case a puddle of demerara melted in butter.
