Gooseberry Whip

Recipe file created August 18, 2000.
Gooseberries are quite tart. You may want to taste and adjust the sugar before assembling the dessert.


Put the gooseberries in a saucepan with 1 tablespoon of water. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes, until soft. Cool.

Puree gooseberries in a blender or food processor. Rub through a sieve. Add granulated sugar. Whip the cream, and stir into the gooseberry mixture.

Melt the margarine in a frying pan. Add nuts and breadcrumbs. Fry until toasted and golden brown. Remove from heat. Add brown sugar.

Put a layer of gooseberry mixture in a glass serving dish, followed by a layer of crumb mixture. Use about half of each mixture per layer. Chill until ready to serve.


You can also layer the dessert in individual serving glasses, which makes a very attractive display.
