No kidding it’s a real berry! A gooseberry is also a term referring to a “fool.” Put them together and you have an English dessert call Gooseberry Fool which is stewed gooseberries folded into a cream. It may be fool hardy to not try this backyard small fruit in your garden. It is a slightly tart grape size berry used to make desserts like pies, tarts, jellies, and jams. This small bush is more common in European gardens than in American gardens, but is gaining in popularity.
- Growing Organic
My husband and I own 5 acres in New Harmony, Utah. Being self-reliant and wise stewards of our land has always been a priority. I have been growing a garden and raising berries, herbs, vegetables, and fruit organically for 10 years. Through extending the season and preserving food we produce much of our own food. I believe with a little wisdom and effort anyone can be successful in gardening. We have home schooled our children for the last 21 years and are now empty nesters. It was a treasured journey and now I'm enjoying watching my children begin this same adventure with our grandchildren. Along with gardening our we have chickens, ducks, and dairy goats. I enjoy many interests including sewing, quilting, cooking, reading, archery, target shooting, preparedness, and making my own lotions and soaps. Our family goal has been to love the Lord, liberty, and learning. Each day brings new challenges and adventures and great opportunities.
