Gooseberry Pie

A gooseberry pie is a good introduction to gooseberries for anyone who is unfamiliar with this fruit.

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place a baking sheet on a lower oven rack.

  2. Stem and rinse gooseberries.

  3. Crush 1/2 cup berries in the bottom of a saucepan. Mix 2 cups sugar, tapioca, and salt together in a small bowl; pour over crushed berries and mix until combined. Turn the heat to medium; cook and stir until mixture boils. Cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in remaining whole berries.

  4. Press one pastry into a 9-inch pie pan. Pour in fruit filling, then cover with top pastry; cut slits to allow steam to escape. Brush top pastry with milk and sprinkle with 1 1/2 tabelspoons sugar.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven on the baking sheet until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 35 minutes.
