How rustic

Searching for gooseberries in our small but jungle-like garden – Leo is fast becoming an expert…


The little gooseberry tree was one of the many pleasant surprises the seemingly boring garden held when we came to live here. Now, almost two years later, the garden has shown itself to be a vast summer jungle of ferns, hydrangea, clematis, wild hyacinths and what-not, and the gooseberry tree proves that it’s small, but fruitful.

So two days ago I was able to make a homemade crumble with my own, home grown gooseberries! For someone who secretly still believes that fruit grows in the supermarket, that’s quite something…


The recipe, as told by my friend A., is really too simple:

Fill a shallow pie form with berries.

– 150 g flour
– 75 g butter
– 75 g caster sugar

Knead this to a crumble dough and spread it over the berries. Thirty minutes in the oven at 175 degrees (celsius, that is), et voila! Take some cream and enjoy!
