This dish is actually called a Fool. Yeah, yeah, snigger childishly all you like, then Google the name! The dish dates back to the 16th century when stewed or macerated fruit, (generally gooseberries) was mixed with custard. Lovely though custard is, nowadays heavy whipped cream is used. This makes for a quick to make dish that looks and tastes delish. It’s almost a crime that it’s good for you. Another guilt free desert for Primal eaters!

My sister introduced me to this dish, she is a Primal convert as well as a cooking teacher. So not a week goes by without her cooking up a Paleo/Primal storm by adapting old recipes. She constantly supports and encourages me with this blog and you will see more of her recipe adaptations over time.
