Gooseberries are a fine source of vitamin A and C, and potassium. However, the conventional pie recipe calls for over two cups of white sugar and a double pastry piecrust! Nutrition facts vary by recipe, but one slice can have over 500 calories and 30 grams of fat.
Reduce the sugar and use whole-wheat crust to lighten it up. Or, try baking other festive fruit pies. This one is made with pears and cranberry granola, and has one-third of the fat plus 5 grams of dietary fiber per slice.
