Spied gooseberries at your local farmers market? Here are some ideas for how to use them, including a recipe for a straightforward gooseberry jam.

A version of this gooseberry jam, with a few tablespoons of chopped, preserved ginger added to it, won me a ribbon at Canada's Royal Winter Agricultural Fair. Photo by Niamh Malcolm.
