While looking for a breakfast recepie this morning, my partner came across an interesting entry in the dessert section of Marie Claire: Blacberry Fool. The interesting part is in the ‘notes’ section just below the recepie, where it states that if cannot find blackberries you can use other berries as sobstitute.
uh? as far as i know blackberries in this country are illegal. Farmers are, by the stipulation of the Noxious Weeds Act 1992, obliged to continously suppress and prevent from fruiting the plant!
Here it is anyway:
3 tablespoons caster sugar
2 tablespoons cre’me de framboise
1 teaspoon orange flower water
315ml cream, whipped
Put the blackberries, sugar, liquer and orange flower water into a blender or food processor and whiz to a pure’ (if you don’t like seeds, sieve the pure’ at this point).
Fold the pure’ed berries into the cream and fold the mixture into 4 chilled glasses.
Serve the Fool with almod bread or biscotti.
