Gooseberry Fool Recipe Gooseberries – the forgotten British summer fruit. No one quite knows why they are called gooseberries - many plants have been named after animals for no apparent reason. There is something unique about the popping of zingy pulp on your tongue when you bite a gooseberry. And unlike most of the berry fruits, the seeds are so soft and easy to eat. They are so versatile as they can be eaten sweet or savoury – they make wonderful jams, jellies, savoury sauces and chutneys and freeze really well.
