Шаг 1

Here he is our handsome gooseberry. Of course, for jam better not to use the ripened berries, then they will not fall apart and the color will be brighter and greener. In my case, the gooseberries are very ripe, but this option has its advantages - less sugar will be required.

Each of the berries need to cut off the tail and the stalk and chop in several places. I for this purpose use a thin knife type of stiletto.

Шаг 3

Spread berries in pan and sprinkle with alcohol, diluted with water, or vodka. From 100 ml. water and 200 gr. sugar, cook the syrup and pour it over the gooseberries. Add cherry leaves, bring to boil, squeeze a slice of lemon and cook on slow heat for 5 minutes.

Шаг 4

At intervals of 4 hours to repeat the procedure twice more. Clean cherry leaves. It looks like the gooseberry after 2 brews. The jam is stirred. I carefully removed the foam, but it was very small. For the last time in well warmed up berries pour 200 gr. sugar for jam and boil for 3 minutes.

Шаг 5

The jam turned out very flavorful, with a light, unobtrusive acidity.

Шаг 6

The last jar I added a handful of cashew nuts. Bon appetit!
