Perfect Pickled Gooseberries

When life gives you gooseberries, get out a canning jar. Make perfect pickled gooseberries with your surplus gooseberry harvest!




  1. Fill a sterilized pint-size jar with the gooseberries.
  2. Bring the white wine vinegar and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, stirring frequently.
  3. When the sugar is fully dissolved, remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture cool completely.
  4. Pour the cooled mixture over the gooseberries and seal the jar tightly.
  5. Put the jar in the back of the fridge and check on it in a month. Your pickled gooseberries will be ready.
