[NAFEX] recipes wanted: black currant and gooseberry

Another nice thing about the runover technique is that you can stick your
finger in the runover goo and see if you got the sweetening right without
cutting into the pie before it is served.  If it is too twangy there is time
to locate some ice cream to go with it.  

 

This time it seems to have come out quite nicely. Sweet enough to be good..
twangy enough to be interesting.

lol, I cook blueberry pies until they run over.  That's how I tell they are
done, too.

Well that got me going.  I just rooted around in the freezer and found a
quart bag of black currants.  It did not look enough for a pie.  I like
fruit in my fruit pies. But I also found a quart bag of gooseberries.  So a
quart of black currants, a pint of gooseberries, some sugar, pinch of salt,
maybe a teaspoon of cinnamon  and some flour, pilled real high (got scary
near the end) into a pretty good sized pie plate, double crust so it will
cook through.  (The berries are still frozen) A tray underneath it in the
oven.  It will definitely run over, that is how I tell that it is cooked, by
the runover.   I thought about using some orange or lemon rind in it but
decided against that this time.

 

350 for an hour or so.. till done.

Black currant  pancakes and muffins.  I just dump a bunch in instead of
blueberries which do not grow well here. Black currant pie sounds like a
good idea also.  Sorry.. I do not recipe cook mostly.

 

Upside down cake with gooseberries and some currants for color?

The crop is coming in and I'm looking for excellent recipes for using black
currant and gooseberries.  Jellies, jams, or just about anything!  Thanks.
