For many, the humble gooseberry epitimises the taste of the British summer. If you haven’t tried them, you’re missing out. Ok, they take a bit more preparation then our other fruit but it’s well worth the effort and something that the kids can get involved with.

They are packed with Vitamin C and a simple Gooseberry Fool makes a lovely light dessert to follow a BBQ. They also pair well with oily fish so why not try them as an accompaniment for grilled mackeral for a perfect summer lunch?
