The first home-grown gooseberries are small, hard and very sharp - perfect for a fool, that simple and very English combination of whipped cream and stewed fruit. If you can manage to lay your hands on a few heads of elderflowers, use these instead of cordial to perfume the cooking juices; cook the fruit in plain water, drop in the whole elderflower heads, stalks and all, and remove them before you sweeten the fruit.
Serves: 4 - 6
