Does anyone have any personal experience with a 'Gooseberry'?
Because I do like them a lot, but they seem to be virtually nonexistent in the US.

1. That's foolish of you.
sorry - regretable pun.

We used to have a couple of gooseberry bushes in the garden when I was young - though ours were a very light yellowish green colour.

4. Only on "Keeping Up Appearances"
when Hyacinth went to the country house auction, and was bidding on Dowager Lady Ursula's Gooseberry Wine.

Actually, I think a lady where I worked in Austin made a pie from some bushes they had on their property. I found it almost impossible to eat since she had not SEEDED the gooseberries first.

Seedy little fuckers, those gooseberries. Whatever you make, strain the crap first.

I never liked them-- I always thought they were too sour.
