    Rose-Scented Mixed Berry Fool 2010

    A rose-scented fool, tumbled with loosely whipped cream, that will evoke memories of summer.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes plus chilling
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • 300 g frozen Waitrose British Summer Fruits, defrosted
    • 2 tbsp caster sugar
    • 1-2 drops Star Kay White Rose Water
    • 170 ml pot essential Waitrose Double Cream


    1. Place the fruit in a pan with the sugar and heat gently until just boiling and the fruit is releasing its juice. Remove from the heat. Transfer to a bowl, allow to cool, then place in the fridge for 1-2 hours
    2. When the fruit is chilled, strain through a fine sieve and reserve the juice. Gently crush the fruit with a fork, making sure you keep some texture. Add the rose water and mix thoroughly.
    3. Whisk the cream in a bowl until it starts to thicken – it should remain soft, just holding its shape. Stir in the fruit and gently mix to combine, leaving a rippled effect. Scoop into two glass bowls and drizzle with the reserved juices just before serving.

    Cook's tips

    This rose water is pure extract of rose petals and is very strong. Add a drop, then taste before adding more.

    Drinks recommendation

    Waitrose Sauternes would be perfect with this fool.
