    1. Emily will be doing the baking. She promised! I have no idea how they are cooked to be honest. I’ll ask and post tomorrow.
      I took the photo just after I rinsed the berries and removed all the green ones soon after. But I did not know that unripe berries were semi-poisonous. Thanks for the heads up.

    2. Oooooo! 😲 Would… would Emily have cause to… umm…

      “Rub out,” whack, eliminate, remove from the Garden-of-Paradise equation the famous Arkesatan!? What could Doug possibly have done to upset Emily so much to bake his FINAL pie!??? Inquiring minds want to know. 🧐

      1. As it was moi wot planted the gooseberries in the first place, I am hardly likely to be the instrument of my own demise, now am I?
        Sheesh!
        Besides, if I did keel over and kick the bucket you would be the first one I’d come back and haunt.

          1. No. How could you inflict me on the poor woman? She has done nothing to deserve such a punishment. Good grief!
            Unlike you, she is a dear blog pal.
            And the next time me and mine go to Portugal on our hols I shall pop in and say ”bom dia”.

          2. Ah, well… my sincerest apologies to the Lady of Portugal. 🀭 She CERTAINLY doesn’t deserve that level of torture.

            The thought jumped into my head—connecting Portugal to your lovely wife—and it wouldn’t come back out. Apparently it was a jumbled-up circus in the Professor’s Cranium Fun-house of the Bizarre & Incomprehensible-ness. πŸ˜‰ Forgive me Sir?

    3. Asked Ems this afternoon. She has no idea either as she has never cooked one of these pies before. I looked at a couple of recipes online and they do cook them.
      Come Sunday it will be a voyage of discovery for all of us!
