Gooseberry Fool

The last of this seasons gooseberries have been picked form our gooseberry bushes and I needed to come up with a quick and easy recipe for them...

I'd never had Gooseberry fool, and as far as I can tell, it's quite a retro dish! BUT it is super yummy and quick and easy!!!

All you have to do is stew your gooseberries (as many as you have) ideally with a couple of tbsps of caster sugar, a squeeze of lemon (to suit your tastes) and then blitz them up in a food processor!!!

Strain the blitzed mixture for any seedy-bit or stalks that have remained. Before putting the puree back into the food processor. This time slowly start pouring cream into the processor. Add a little at a time until you have a creamy mixture the thickness of yogurt.

Whilst my gooseberries and cream were blitzing I added sugar to the juices of the stewed gooseberries in a pan and let it turn into a caramel type sauce to top the fool!

There really are no exact amounts for this recipe, just have a tsp to hand to taste as you go and you'll be fine.

All that is required are some gooseberries, cream, sugar, and lemon!
