Duck, Duck, Gooseberry

Packages of gooseberries have been sitting in our freezer for quite some time now. My mother picked them at the Sandbergs last year, but never made anything of them. They have been waiting patiently all these months, and today I fulfilled their dreams. I made gooseberry jam.

Of course, before pouring the new jam into glass jars I had to soak them in water to unstick the labels and then boil them in a pot of water to disinfect them. With my tongs, I felt a bit like a mad scientist, demoted from the higher echelons of science and forced to concoct secret formulas on the kitchen stove.

You know, despite spending all day in the kitchen, I forgot to eat.
