What a Fool!

Lest you think this is about a jester, harlequin or someone with poor judgement, ChezHelvetica presents the food fool. From mid-17th century England, desserts with fruit were so named Fool. Similar to a Trifle, the original “Foole” consisted of custard and stewed fruit. Today’s recipes most often include whipped cream as thisĀ Blackberry Fool from Martha Stewart Living. The incredible Blackberries from Florin Gardens provided the inspiration for this delicious dessert and a Heavenly Healthy Banana Bread. By adding a half cup of the Berries to the mixture of Whole Wheat Flour, Bananas, Honey, Eggs and Roasted Walnuts and then crowning the whole loaf with a half cup more, the angels were singing indeed!
