Crepe & Gooseberry Jam

Every summer my Grandma harvests gooseberries from her own garden. After cleaning, she makes jam out of it. The recipe for this is very simple. Weigh the gooseberries, and take the same amount granulated sugar. Cook this until the fruits are soft, blend it, and pour it into cleaned jars. You can even add some lemon juice and lemon zest to make the jam more fresh. For this recipe you can use that gooseberry jam or another delicious jam. Definitely one of the weekend favorites!
