Gooseberry Crisp

Never once in my life
have I tasted gooseberries.
Apparently they aren't
big in California
these days.
Not one store had 
fresh, frozen or canned.
My daughter sent me 
two cans via Amazon.

Have no idea why this is sideways

I wasn't really sure how to adapt Rose's recipe
using canned gooseberries
so I winged it.
I followed the recipe
except for softening the fruit.

The juices bubbled up 
which was a great sign!

I like the flavor.
It seems similar to rhubarb
in that sort of sweet-sour 
kind of way.
I would make this again
only double the topping.
That topping is good!

  1. Yes, I want to double the topping, too! I hope next summer I remember to get some fresh gooseberries.
