Fresh Gooseberry and Elderflower MuffinsMakes 6 large muffins

Fresh Gooseberry and Elderflower Muffins

What’s good about changing seasons is looking forward to gooseberries, which only come once a year. They can of course be frozen but they’re never quite as good, so once a year make these glorious and very special muffins.
