I have been playing again over the weekend. The gooseberries literally fell out of the freezer saying use me use me - and being as I couldn't quite get them in again I succumbed and emptied them into a preserving jar with about an ounce of sugar and topped up with a litre bottle of Voddie. Naughty me!
The intention is once the fruit and voddie have macerated together that I will strain off and then add a little elderflower syrup so in effect will have a Gooseberry and Elderflower tipple. Well thats the plan anyway. Will let you know how it goes. I may do half and half i.e. half the liquid just goosebery and the balance gooseberry and elderflower. Something else for the booze cabinet for Chrimbo. Ooh that word again.
