When I was at the Blaydon Burn Food Festival, I swapped two jars of jam for a stack of gooseberries. This was a very useful trade as our gooseberry bushes were badly damaged by the goats over the winter. We have moved them out of the allotment where we keep the animals and transplanted them on our Farside plot but there was no fruit on them this year.
Jam-making in which gooseberries were a key ingredient has been underway. Reports to follow shortly.
