About this recipe: I love making this refreshing fool in the summer when fresh gooseberries are at their peak! Serve with extra cream or yoghurt and shortbread.
needs twice as much cream as called for; on the order of 300 ml double cream. This puts it more in line with other recipes and without it, the berries turn it to soup. - 17 Aug 2012
I agree with fam.cman. I put 300ml of mock cream in + 6tbs yoghurt. Also 4 drops of vanilla essence to the gooseberries. I simmered the gooseberries to render to a wet porridge consistency. Very nice though! - 16 Jul 2014
