Gooseberries are dry and crisp like a Sauvignon Blanc with flavor like green apple or tropical fruit. This food-forward jam stands up to big flavors, both sweet and savory.
Green Gooseberry Jalm
Gooseberries are members of the ribes family, which includes currants. The plant was banned in the United States starting in the early 1900s because they were found to be a threat to the logging industry. Regulations have been lifted in some states, including Oregon, to allow us to enjoy this powerful little berry.
The gooseberry makes a well balanced and bright jalm. The sharp acidity makes it easy to pair with high fat foods.
Ingredients: gooseberries, sugar, pectin, citric acid, salt
