    • 2 tablespoons cornflour

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Stem and rinse berries. Crush 1/4 of the gooseberries in the bottom of a saucepan. Combine sugar, cornflour and salt; mix with crushed gooseberries. Cook and stir until mixture boils. Cook further 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and add in remaining whole gooseberries.
    3. Pour fruit filling into lined pastry case. Adjust top pastry, pinching the seams together to seal and cut slits to let steam escape. Brush with milk and sprinkle over sugar.

    Wonderful way to use up my gooseberries!  -  21 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This is the recipe I use, but only use 300g sugar. I usually add a bit of cinnamon before covering with the top pastry.  -  21 Jul 2008


    This pie was great. It was not tart like some of the other Gooseberry recipies I have tried. My husband and my kids raved over it.  -  21 Jul 2008
