In my previous post titled “Beauty and Health Benefits of Indian Gooseberry” I have already listed all the numerous advantages of adding Indian Gooseberry (amla) in our daily diet. I searched in my Mom’s recipe books and found this wonderful Honey and Indian Gooseberry Preserve. I have been eating a teaspoonful of the preserve with breakfast everyday ever since and am feeling great. Boost immunity with this super and simple recipe…
1 kg Indian gooseberries (amla),
1″ size cinnamon stick,
2 cups water,
1/4 cup granulated sugar,
1/2 cup honey (or as per taste).
Wash, deseed and chop the gooseberries into small pieces.
In a non-stick saucepan, boil berries, cinnamon, water and sugar.
Once they are cooked and soft, remove the cinnamon stick and discard it.
Add honey and boil till the mixture looks like jam. (approximate cooking time 1/2 hour)
Cool and store in an airtight jar.
Have one teaspoon every day for immunity, vitality, and an evergreen, youthful look.
Note 1: You can also have it as a topping with icecream or with pancakes.
Note 2: Diabetics can also have this gooseberry preserve because it has very little sugar. Most of the sweetness comes from the honey.
Note 2: If you like the flavour of cinnamon very much, you can add 1 tsp of the powder while cooking and leave it in the preserve.
