Gooseberry Fool
  • gooseberries
  • sugar, to taste
  • water, just a splash
  • whipped cream
  1. For a sweet gooseberry sauce, top and tail green gooseberries before tossing them into the pan. Add sugar, to taste, and just a splash of water to prevent the fruit from burning.
  2. Cover and cook for a few minutes. Once the juices begin to bubble, uncover and cook until the fruit has broken down.
  3. Cool the cooked gooseberries, then fold into thick custard mixed with lightly whipped cream.
