Gooseberry Fools (Trifle, Parfait, Whatever)

August 31st, 2010 in cooking, Raising Kids on Read Food

Honestly, I don’t know if I will every buy gooseberries again BUT they were something fun to try.  The whole time I was eating this, I couldn’t help thinking how much BETTER it would have been with a different sort of berry.  Still good to try new things though! The fancy name for this is a “Fool,” although Trifle or Parfait or Whatever works too.


Custard, yes it is super easy.  See here.

Freshly Whipped Whipping Cream



1. Gently clean gooseberries and put them in a pot with boiling water.  Let boil for 2 minutes until they get soft.  Then let cool.

2. Layer the custard, cream and gooseberries.  Enjoy!
