    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.

    Sprinkling the base of the goosberry pie with ground almonds or hazelnuts is a little trick to absorb the juice that the gooseberries release during baking so it does not become soggy.

    A nice juicy traybake that you bake with other jarred fruit instead of gooseberries, if desired. The lovely cream layer isn't overly sweet, thanks to the soured cream, which lends a nice tartness.

    This lovely gooseberry tart is a slightly more intricate tart than the ordinary, but the extra effort pays dividends. It looks incredibly impressive when you serve it at a dinner party or garden lunch.

    I love making this refreshing fool in the summer when fresh gooseberries are at their peak! Serve with extra cream or yoghurt and shortbread.
