West Indian Gooseberry Drink
Remember those West Indian gooseberries I had several post ago? Well a friend of mine dropped off a huge bag of fresh gooseberries at my house this weekend and I was super happy with the bounty. Preserves were made but I still had some extra left. Her mother suggested I make a drink with the reminding berries. A drink? with those extremely tart berries. Well let me tell you the drink turned out well. This recipe is not for my international readers and you would not find West Indian gooseberries there. I will be back to regular posting by midweek. I have been really caught up with the book that is why I am not posting 3 times a week anymore my apologizes. There is still the special announcement coming up so look out for that.

Cook gooseberries in water and sugar and cinnamon. Leave for 1 hour to allow this mixture to draw. The liquid turns reddish brown. Pour off liquid, this is your gooseberry drink concentrate. To serve Add 1/2 concentrate to 1/2 water with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Add some of the gooseberries in the glass so your guest could have the fruit when they are finished with the drink.
