Green Gooseberry

The term “green gooseberry” today typically means a variety of gooseberry that is green in color when ripe.  For the 18th century receipt (recipe), To make a Gooseberry Tansy, the words “green gooseberry” refer to the unripe berry that has the taste of sour grapes.  This bush was picked in May and the gooseberries are just ripe this weekend.
