Ode to the Gooseberry

I can’t find a gooseberry in the USA,

Where did this humble fruit go?

Gooseberry pies, gooseberry tarts,

Served with custard or cream,

Will I ever taste the gooseberry again?

or will I just have to dream?


If you know where I can find a gooseberry, please let me know.

    I haven’t seen them in a long time. They used to be in season at the same time as mackerel came close to shore. The fish with a gooseberry sauce is one of the nicest combinations possible.
