DAY 119 - GOOSEBERRY PIE

Wayne loves gooseberry pie. I didn't know this until he ordered a piece at Roxanne's Cafe one time. Roxanne's mother Brenda makes it. She even gave me her recipe. I didn't use it this time because she uses canned gooseberries and I had fresh ones Friend Carla picked and gave us.

The recipe I used was in the Midwest Old Threshers Cookbook, 1989 - 40th Reunion Limited Edition. The hardest part of picking the stems off the berries. I ended up helping Wayne because it was taking him a long time. He decided it was harder for him because he didn't have long enough fingernails. Actually making the pie was super easy. Since I had never eaten gooseberry pie, Wayne insisted I try it. So I ate one gooseberry and decided it was just too tart for me. He loves it though so I guess since I made it for him, that's all that is important.
