Gooseberry and Elderflower Fool

Gooseberry and Elderflower Fool

450g (1 lb) gooseberries

2 tbsp elderflower cordial

1 tbsp water

55g (2 oz) caster sugar

300ml (½ pint) double cream


A traditional English recipe lovely for summer entertaining. There is no need to top and tail the gooseberries as they are sieved to make the purée.

Serves 4

Put the gooseberries into an AGA TC stainless steel saucepan with the elderflower cordial, water and sugar. Heat on the Simmering Plate until just boiling then transfer to the Simmering Oven for about 20 minutes or until soft. Sieve the gooseberries to remove all the skin and pips. Taste for sweetness and add more sugar if desired. Cool. Whip the cream until thick but not stiff and fold in the gooseberry and elderflower purée. Spoon the mixture into four pretty glasses, chill then serve with a crisp biscuit.

Conventional cooking
Cook the gooseberries on a low heat on the hob for about 10 minutes or until soft.
