    i am so excited to try this recipe, i love cape gooseberries!! do you think it would taste good if i did blackberries instead of the blueberries? or used thawed blueberries? thanks for the recipe!!

    • Hi Candie,

      Thawed blueberries will work perfectly and I think blackberries would be delicious in this too. Maybe make 2 batches. :) Trust me…this jam is so good you’ll be glad you have twice as much. I gave jars of this to my neighbors and they’re still asking me for more. Please let me know what you think of it. Can’t wait to hear about the blackberry version.

    Great looking. I did see those gooseberries and thought those are weird looking tomatillos. Glad you set me straight. Please don’t laugh too much. Love that you give the weight along with the measure. My cooking has improved since I brought out the scale.

    • Madonna, I would never laugh about that. They do look like small tomatillos and I’ve seen/heard many at my local farmer’s market ask that very question.

  • I love making jam, and this recipe looks wonderful! Now the hunt for gooseberries begins.

    • Hi Janelle,
      keeping my fingers crossed for a successful gooseberry hunt. You can always get them online if you can’t find any locally. This is such an easy and delicious recipe. You’re gonna love it!

    • I’m with you Belinda. I’ve got to have more than a cup of coffee in the morning to get going.
