Tasty Facts

The taste of gooseberry compote depends on the variety: sour varieties should be balanced with sugar or sweet fruits, sweet varieties do not need a lot of sugar.

Gooseberries for harvesting compote should be used unripe – then you get a transparent compote with a bright taste. Ripe gooseberries are recommended for making compote for the day.

Since the taste of gooseberries is often mild and can be interrupted with sugar, it is recommended to cook compote only from gooseberries for the day, and to prepare compote for the winter, it is preferable to add other berries and fruits to gooseberries.
