Gooseberry Fool

This is something from childhood for me. We would go to a pick your own farm and mum would produce this delisious, cool & smooth pudding. Perfect for the family or posh party!

1lb Gooseberries
20g unsalted butter
castor sugar to taste
1/4 whipped cream
1/4 custard
Top & tail the gooseberries and wash and add to a pan with the butter. Simmer in the pan until the gooseberries are cooked and mushy. Seive this mixture through a fine seive and mix with the custard. Add extra sugar at this stage if required. Finally add the whipped cream and chill in a bowl or individual bowls before serving. Summer in a pud!
