    • I hadn’t expected to find *that* many gooseberries, actually – usually the birds get to them before I do. But when I looked closely underneath the leaves and even on the ground below, there were so many! Not enough for making a jar of jam, but dee-lish just like that.

      I too am hopeful that the weather will be good this week so we can visit the flowers!

  1. There is nothing in North America like Cape gooseberries: the tart sweet pop in the mouth taste is unique.
    by the way there are shops all over the States selling South African foods like rusks and biltong and no doubt Kathy could purchase Cape gooseberry jam from them.

    • Oooooh! Thank you for that tip, Rosie – I hope Kathy is reading this, though there may not be such shops in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where she lives.

      I suppose you must have tasted Cape gooseberries, together with rusks and biltong, when you visited our fair land, hm? πŸ˜€

I'd love to hear your views
