Gooseberry Pie Recipe

Pick a little more than 1 quart quart of gooseberries. Discard any soft berries. Remove stems and tails if necessary, then wash the berries.

3/4 cup sugar
4 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon salt

1. Sprinkle over berries and stir to distribute.

2. Turn berries into an unbaked 8-inch pie crust and dot the top with 2 tablespoons butter. Roll pastry for the upper crust, and cut a design for steam vents. Brush the edge of pastry with water.

3. Lay pastry over pie. Press pastry edges together and trim. Let rest 10 minutes and flute.

4. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes or until crust is delicately browned. Then reduce heat to 325 degrees and continue baking 20 to 30 minutes or until berries are tender.
