Gooseberry gin
« on: June 07, 2019, 09:19 »
Recipe requested elsewhere on the forum, but worth sharing  :)

500g gooseberries
1 litre of gin
Granulated sugar - 100g for ripe dessert gooseberries, 200g for unripe dessert gooseberries, 375g for green cooking gooseberries

Halve the gooseberries and add to gin and sugar in a large jar or similar container with a good fitting lid.  Shake the jar daily until the sugar dissolves.  Put in a cool dark place to steep for a few months - it is hard to exact here because it will depend on the fruit you start with, but 3/4 months seems to be best for ripe fruit, the recipe says 6 months if very unripe.  Keep an occasional eye on it and strain out the gooseberries if they look to be discolouring or falling apart.  Bottle and mature a few months more for the best flavour.

Keep the strained out fruit for an extra special crumble  ;)
