Gooseberry Fool

Dessert.Master's picture
  Ripe gooseberries 1 Quart (fresh, ripe)
  Honey 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Water 3 Tablespoon
  Heavy cream 2 Cup (32 tbs)

Wash the berries and pick over them carefully, removing blossoms and stems and discarding any berries which are bruised or soft.
Place the fruit in a saucepan, add honey and water, and cook very gently until the berries are soft enough to mash.
Puree in a blender or force through a fine sieve.
Test sweetness and add more honey to taste.
Whip the cream until thick.
Fold the gooseberry puree into the cream, making sure not to overmix.
A marbleized effect is desirable and attractive.
