- Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
- 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.

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
