In many gardens of Österlen one can find Gooseberry bushes. This sweet & sour fruit is very popular in the region. Gooseberry can be green, yellow, red, orange and black, depending on the variety.
Gooseberry from our garden is green, and very sweet. From the 16th century, Gooseberry is used in western medicine as it is known to have high amounts of vitamin C.
There are many culinary recipes about Gooseberry. It can be eaten raw, but also vines, jams and pies can be made from it. This year, we want to make a chutney from our Gooseberries.
