Jam Making…

…so we have an absolute glut of gooseberries, and still have at least half a bush still to pick.gooseberries

Redcurrants¬†aren’t ripe yet, but we will have a goodly stash of those, and a few hundred blackcurrants.

So my mum has decided to make jam!

Actually gooseberry seems to be quite easy – equal amounts of fruit and sugar, bit of boiling and Bob’s your uncle, so to speak.

But, I have one question that has got me stumped!

Gooseberries are green.

Why then, is gooseberry jam red?

Anyone know?
