Compote Of Gooseberries Recipe

Choose a quart of large, sound, ripe, green

gooseberries, (cost ten cents,) remove the stems and tops, throw them

into boiling water for two minutes; drain them, let them lay three

minutes in cold water containing a tablespoonful of vinegar, to restore

their color, and then drain them quite dry. Meantime make a thick syrup

by boiling one pound of sugar, (cost twelve cents,) with one pint of

water; as soon as the syrup has boiled about ten minutes, put in the

gooseberries and boil them gently until just tender, about ten minutes.

Then pour both fruit and syrup into an earthen or glass dish; cool, and

use. The dish will cost less than twenty-five cents.
