    Ingredients

    Gooseberries.

    Cape Gooseberries are closely related to currants and are a member of the ribe family. Their cultivation began in the 1700's in Europe and Americas due to the easy to grow, attractive bushes and useful flavor in jams and pies. They are now used more as a specialty, hardly available in regular markets in The United States. This particular breed of Cape Gooseberries is cultivated in South Africa.

    Classic recipe

    Gooseberry Jam

    Our Cape Gooseberries have a sweet yet tart flavor all their own that makes for a delicious jam. By re-hydrating them overnight in the same water they’re eventually boiled in, the jam retains all the rich flavor of the fruit. Try on toast or biscuits for a delicious morning treat.
