I like them for five reasons:

1. They match my walls.

2. The dried version is so tangy-sweet that it is a total health party in my mouth.

3. They kind of look like shriveled testicles.

4. They are an amazing super-powered super fruit.

5. They’re like exotic raisins.

Let’s focus on number 3 for a minute here. Now this is not a totally random association. See, I love the way these taste when they are dried. They are a whole other mouthful when fresh. I promise you, I was not the first to make this association, I won’t be the last and because this is Making Love In The Kitchen, I am going to go there: fresh gooseberries taste like spooge… uh… or so I’ve been told.
