    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    I have never managed to get plain strawberry jam to set, partially because I absolutely refuse to add sufficient sugar. Adding gooseberries (or currants) ensures a good set, and adds a very nice tangy flavour too.

      I have one small gooseberry bush and it was heavy with fruit this year. Picking the gooseberries and making this jam was a great project for my visiting Granddaughter this week-end. The jam set up nicely and there is a sweet/tart flavor we very much enjoyed.

      I was gonna post this recipe but you've beaten me to it! I really like this jam. We get a lot of strawberries at this time of year and while I love them fresh, I'm not so keen on them in jam for some reason. This recipe really gives it that sumthin' sumthin' though and is a great recipe that's easy to make. Incidentally I make mine with still-green gooseberries just cos that's how I like them best! Mmmm!
