Nicholas Culpeper,  an early English 17th century physician, wrote about the Gooseberry Bush, called also Feapberry …Dewberry…and WineberryThe berries , when they are unripe, being scalded or baked, are good to stir up a fainting or delayed appetite.  You may keep them preserved in sugar all the year long.   The ripe Gooseberries being eaten, are an excellent remedy to allay the violent heat both of the stomach and liver.
