Berry Fool

Our Berry Fool is, in fact, no fool at all, for it combines three delicious ingredients so that you can whip up a tasty dessert in a jiffy. The nuts are simply an added bonus.

Serves: Four

Time: 20 minutes


  • 1/2 jar blackberry (or any berry) jam
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup mixed fresh berries
  • handful walnuts or pecans, chopped (optional)


Pass the jam through a fine sieve and throw out the solids.  In a bowl, beat the cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold the jam into the cream to form swirls. Divide mixture among four cups and garnish with berries and nuts.
