Remove the tops and stalks from two quarts of ripe,
red gooseberries, (cost twenty cents,) put them in a moderate oven till
soft enough to rub through a seive; then add to them one-fourth their
weight of sugar, set them over the fire to boil gently for half an hour,
stirring them constantly, and skimming till clear; then put by the
tablespoonful on plates, and dry in the mouth of a cool oven. Pack, when
quite cool, in a tight box, between sheets of white wrapping paper. The
above quantity will cost about twenty-five cents.
