Gooseberries are naturally high in pectin, so you don't need pectin for this easy jam recipe! Simply use an equal quantity of gooseberries and granulated sugar. Green gooseberries work just as well as ripe ones, though you may want to add 200-300g more sugar and 100ml more water if they are very under-ripe. Enjoy!
This recipe is simple: I didn't include a pastry recipe because the frozen pastry you can buy in the shops is just as good! The gooseberries are cooked with sugar and a bit of cornflour for thickening.

Here, the flavour of the gooseberries is enhanced with fragrant elderflower cordial and fresh mint, and the crumble topping has oats, hazelnuts and wheatgerm added.
