Fruit fools – “foole” in Shakespeare’s day – are first found in recipe books in Elizabethan England although it has never been clear why the word was used in this way. It might be a version of the French word fouler which means to crush or to press (they meant crushing grapes to make wine in the vineyards of France) and was taken because of the way the fruit is pressed or crushed to make a sensational dessert. Whatever, it’s stood the test of time and is a really quick and easy and yummy – way to end a meal.
