  • 450 g gooseberries topped and tailed
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • 3-4 tablespoons sugar

  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar


  • Place the gooseberries, sugar and water in a large, heavy bottomed saucepan
  • On a medium to high hob, heat up and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes
  • The gooseberries will gradually soften
  • Add a little more water if necessary but do not be tempted to add too much or the fruit will be too liquid
  • Meanwhile, rub the butter into the flour until it looks like breadcrumbs
  • Stir in the sugar
  • Put the cooked, soft fruit into a baking or casserole dish and cover over with the crumble mix
  • Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes until golden brown
