Gooseberry Tart


  • 1 1/2 pints of gooseberries
  • 1/2 pound of short crust
  • 1/4 pound of moist sugar


With a pair of scissors cut off the tops and tails of the gooseberries; put them into a deep pie-dish, pile the fruit high in the centre, and put in the sugar; line the edge of the dish with short crust, put on the cover, and ornament the edges of the tart; bake in a good oven for about 3/4 hour, and before being sent to table, strew over it some fine-sifted sugar. A jug of cream, or a dish of boiled or baked custards, should always accompany this dish.

Time: 3/4 hour.

Sufficient for 5 or 6 persons.

Seasonable from May to July.
