Gooseberry Pie

At the Garlick household we absolutely love food and are always anxious to try something new and different. Last Saturday morning while perusing the delightful items at our local Farmers Market Dean discovered Gooseberries!!! I know... right? I admittedly have never even seen let alone tasted a gooseberry. So I know, let's make a pie. This delightful pie had one of the most unique flavors I've ever tasted and we all completely fell in love with it! Now, I'm trying to figure out how to get fresh gooseberries in December for Pie Night.

To me, they look like a cross between a grape
and a tiny watermelon.
Dione was happy to play along. She has just returned
from DC the day before and was starved for some goodness.
Here we are cooking the gooseberries with some
sugar and tapioca to thicken the mixture up.

And finally...gooseberry pie! The next time you
spot some gooseberries...snatch em' up!


  1. Gooseberry Pie! Haven't eaten it in years. It is a Booth Family favorite, well the elder Booth's anyway.

  2. Delicious! Strange, exiting, and very uniquely flavored.... The Gooseberry!

  3. OOOOH, love the gooseberry pictures! You certainly make gorgeous crust...when are you going to teach me?

  4. I am going to have to try this sounds like something that would be in Willy Wonka's factory! Looks scrumdidilyumptious!
