Gooseberries

Last year, I discovered that we had a gooseberry bush! It's growing out of a rocky outcrop behind the house, and I have no idea how it got there. Anyway, it's not very big, and the berries on it are being eaten by something - on the outside of the bush, there are more hidden away inside behind the thorns. Anyway, I'm wondering what the best thing to do with a very small number of berries is? I planned to make wine with them last year, but there weren't enough - marginally more this year, but still not enough for that. I'm thinking maybe a crumble, or a fool? Something that makes the most of them anyway. Suggestions? What goes well with gooseberries?

A common use is in a sauce for oily fish.

Elderflowers.

If they are 'wild' gooseberries,are they very small? They can be left to ripen, when they will be delicious eaten raw from the bush.

Yes, they are very small - but beginning to go a bit pink at the edges, so probably ripe. There are elderflowers down the lane...hmmm... haven't caught any fish yet! Elderflower and gooseberry ice cream sounds like a possible plan though!

One of my very favourite tarts is Gooseberry with lovely thick custard.
