"This is a jam recipe was given to me by my mother in law. She made it every year and would send us a pint because we could not get gooseberries where we lived." — SWIZZLESTICKS

Delicious! I'd never tasted a gooseberry before, and wasn't sure what to expect. My jam turned out great, perfect sweet/tart combo, and such a beautiful color. My family loves it too!
Not having a food mill, I crushed my berries in a food processor on "chop". Nice texture, good jam consistency, delicious!
this recipe was GREAT! I have gooseberries growing on my property my jam was not as dark as the picture here, (maybe different types of gooseberries?) mine was a lovely rose color i left the seeds in and it was just fine! you really cant even tell they're in there. Thanks!
I followed the recipe on the sure jell and used the low sugar kind. My mom has gooseberries and I wanted to use them to see how they tasted. I enjoy them on the bush but had never cooked with them. I didn't like the jelly. My mom and dad love the jelly. I guess it's up to your taste buds! I also didn't use the skin or seeds. I put them in a juicer and only used the juice. It is a very pretty color.
Good flavor, but you may want to add more pectin. I had fantastic gooseberries, but this recipe produced a runny product. Unfortunately, there are no "do-overs" when making jam.
