Gooseberry Jam


This gooseberry jam recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law. She made it every year and would send us a pint because we could not get gooseberries where we lived.

Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Total Time:
30 mins
10 half-pint jars


  • 2 quarts fresh gooseberries

  • 6 cups white sugar

  • ½ (6 fluid ounce) container liquid pectin


  1. Remove blossom and stem ends from gooseberries. Force berries through a food mill. Measure 4 cups of berry mash into a large pot. Stir in sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in pectin. Skim off any foam with a large metal spoon.

  2. Sterilize jars and lids in boiling water for at least 10 minutes. Alternate skimming the foam and stirring the berry mixture while letting it cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Ladle into hot, sterile jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.

  3. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
