Serves 6


  • 1kg/ 2lbs 4oz sweet organic eating plums, quartered and pitted or any other prepared seasonal fruit, lightly stewed or poached in 125ml/ ½ cup filtered water.
  • 500 g / 1lb 2oz very ripe summer berries
  • 200ml / ¾ cup chilled coconut cream
  • 250ml / 1 cup cold filtered water
  • 2 rounded tablespoons agar flakes
  • 250ml / 1 cup chilled goat's cream


  • Extra berries for decoration


Purée the berries with the coconut cream in a blender and transfer to an attractive serving bowl. Combine the leftover juices, if there are any, with water so that you have 250ml/1 cup of liquid. Transfer to a small pan, sprinkle with the agar flakes and place over a medium heat for about 3 minutes until dissolved - do not stir. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer the liquid, stirring from time to time, for about 3 minutes.

Set aside for 10-15 minutes until cool but not setting.

Quickly stir the mixture into the berry purée, wipe the side of the bowl if necessary, cover and chill in the refrigerator until set. Just before serving, decorate the top of the fool with a few extra berries. The fool is best eaten within 12 hours.
