April Fools

Sorry, but there aren't any April Fools Day pranks or jokes on this post, just berry fools, Indian gooseberry and marionberry fools. I bought a packet of frozen Indian gooseberries and didn't know what to do with them. They are not the same as the sweetish American gooseberries. They have a single stone and the meat is sour and has a tannic or astringent tongue feel which strangely I really like. But that's just me. I love sour fruits and I don't mind that they taste like unripe fruits.

Gooseberry and Marionberry Fools

Gooseberry or Marionberry Fool
1 cup tart gooseberries or marionberries
sugar, to taste
1½ cups chilled heavy cream
  • In a small pan, heat gooseberries or marionberries with sugar. Cook gooseberries until very soft, mash with a fork. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Whip heavy cream with 3 tablespoons sugar or to taste to soft peaks. Gently fold in the prepared fruits. Spoon into dessert cups.

That looks like the perfect summer dessert: fluffy, tangy, and smooth!
