I fear that you are destined for disappointment Val.
They are Cape Gooseberries..

I have found that they make a decent tart crumble when mixed 50/50 with apples but otherwise have only used them raw..

Yes sorry to say you are right Bob, bang goes my idea for a nice tarty crumble this weekend , never mind the peaches and plums look delicious to eat just as they are . For the non Brits this is what we call a gooseberry, member of the Ribes family , including black currants etc. The cape gooseberry is from the physalis genre, a totally different family .

Good day. Sorry about the confusion Gooseberries VS Cape gooseberries. Of course i was aware of the difference, but i assumed, never had seen GOOSEBERRIES in Udon, that all would understand that i was referring to Cape Gooseberries.
I should not had taken it for granted. Once again accept my apologies.

TIPCO juices..... I like the SHOGUN one (not from concentrate), no sugar, no flavour, no colour added. Not quite the fresh squeezed/pressed juice nonetheless good.
At Ngee Soon ( near Tung Sri Muang) 52 B/l, at Tops 59 B/l
Have a pleasant safe day.

Made in Thailand under license as well.

I hereby declare the 2018 UM Cornflake Wars open.

Makes a change from pies 'n' sausages IMHO.

For what it's worth, part of my breakfast normally involves the Makro cornflakes, so stock up when we do go. My attention was drawn to them by somebody saying that's what the hotels buy. Seem fine to me. Used to be Kelloggs in the Uk, never Nestle, which I found an odd taste.
