  • Add some saffron strands on top and cover that with honey.
  • Now put few more pieces of gooseberry and add some more saffron strands, Cover the entire thing with honey, dont fill to much, since it will expand.
  • You can cover this with a cheese cloth and keep it under sunlight.
  • Clamp a lid and store it for 10 to 15 days so it gets soaked and for better taste.


1)Always use a clean, dry jar and spoons while handling this.
2)After few hours the honey will become watery, This is the water from the gooseberry leaching out. Not to worry about it.
3)Leave it to soak atleast for 5 to 8 days before consuming so it gets time to soak and become soft.
4)You can add cardamom powder or any spices that you like.
5)Daily have a piece of gooseberry along with a spoonful of honey.
6)Once all the gooseberry gets over, you can add somemore cut up gooseberries in the same pot and pour some more honey and let the process get going.
