Ingredients

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste

  • In a small saucepan, mix sugar, water and gooseberries. Mash some of the gooseberries to release juice and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until gooseberries are soft, 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. When cooled, mash with a fork or, for a smoother texture, puree in a blender or food processor.
  • When ready to serve, or up to an hour ahead, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla until it holds soft peaks.
  • Lightly fold in the gooseberry mixture, leaving visable streaks of berries and cream. Divide into serving dishes and serve cold.
  • TIP: Cream whips best when cream, bowl and whisk or beaters are well chilled.
