To make Gooseberry Cream

Mashing and Straining Gooseberries

Mashing and Straining Gooseberries

The first words of the receipt (recipe) To make Gooseberry Cream are Mash gooseberries, then run them through a Seive with a Spoon.   Preparing this receipt was one of eight receipts that hearth students would be preparing.  I brought ALL the equipment needed EXCEPT for a sieve.  Typically, I have a sieve as stock in my food history van-but not this day.  Over the many years that I have been hearth cooking, I have adapted frequently to use equipment that was available and this day was no different.  The gooseberries were mashed with a spoon through a metal colander and fortunately the fruit did not react with the metal and change color.  A horse-hair or non-metal sieve would have been first preference.
