    Seriously Fruity Gooseberry & Ginger Cheesecake

    Gooseberries and delicious nuggets of ginger add a delicious tang to this summery dessert.

    What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?

    It's the tangy freshness of the gooseberries and the 'zing' of the stem ginger which make such a wonderful combination and nothing, to my mind, epitomises summer as the gooseberry


    • 225g digestive biscuits
      150g butter (unsalted) - melted
      1kg gooseberries
      3 tbsp preserved stem ginger in syrup
      180g sugar
      100ml water
      300ml double cream
      500g cream cheese
      sachet of powdered gelatine


    1. Process digestives until fine crumbs, add melted butter, mix, press mixture into cake tin. Place gooseberries, two tbsp sugar & water in a pan, bring to boil, reduce heat - cook for 3-5 minutes until gooseberries soften. Strain gooseberries, set aside to cool. In large bowl whisk cream until soft peaks form. Fold in remaining sugar, cream cheese, stem ginger. Mix in gelatine. Fold 1/2 gooseberries into cream cheese mixture, spread over biscuit base, chill. Sprinkle over remaining gooseberries.
