Ingredients

900g (2lbs) gooseberries

160g (6oz) caster sugar

250ml (1/2pt) double cream

Method

There is no need to top and tail the gooseberries. Put them in a saucepan with the sugar and a couple of tablespoons of cold water. Cook over a slow heat, stirring from time to time, until they are very soft and the juice is running.

Remove from the heat and push the gooseberries through a sieve to make a pureé. Leave the pureé to get cold. Whip the double cream until stiff, then mix with the pureé. Pour into a plastic container and freeze for several hours, stirring once or twice to distribute the cream.

Bring the ice-cream out of the freezing compartment and into the refrigerator about half an hour before serving. Enough for four good helpings.
