This is a real authentic Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. My grandmother use to make gooseberry pies, but we dont have gooseberies in Texas. I guess Texas doesn't have everything!
- 3 1⁄2 cups gooseberries
- 1 teaspoon orange rind
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 2 tablespoons minute tapioca
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 unbaked pie crusts
- Mix all ingredients, except pie crusts.
- Let stand for 15 minutes.
- Pour into 1 pie crust; top with the remaining crust.
- Pinch and seal edges.
- Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes.
If you like gooseberries, you will love the simplicity of this pie.
OMG, what do we have here!?! Not the very yummiest pie I've ever had!?! Yes! So simple to make, all ingredients on hand. I used 2 cups of hybrids, that is, gooseberries crossed with black currants...I don't know of a name for these, but I vote for black gooseberries, and the remainder blueberries. I subbed sugar with Splenda, and added a bit of cinnamon as well. This baked for 50 minutes till it was bubbling around the edges. What a delight in pies, thank you, Miss Annie!
