The theme this week is fruits and nuts. My stamps is from Belarus:
As I posted before:
This is the gooseberry or Grossularia, on a stamp from Belarus. We do not know gooseberries and do not use them in the USA, or at least very rarely. I do remember seeing them for sale, fresh, and as preserves, when I visited Poland.
According to Wikipedia: "Gooseberries are often used as an ingredient in desserts, such as pies, fools and crumbles. They are also used to flavour beverages such as sodas, flavoured waters, or milk, and can be made into fruit wines and teas. Gooseberries can be preserved in the form of jams, dried fruit, or as the primary or a secondary ingredient in pickling, or stored in sugar syrup."
