April Fool’s {a real one}
  • one small container (6 ounces) fresh blackberries
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 to 2 small peaches
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 container (17 ounces) plain Greek yogurt
  • extra fruit for garnishing, if desired
  1. Wash and finely chop your blackberries. Place in a small bowl and stir in a tablespoon of sugar. Let stand for 15 minutes to draw out the juices.
  2. Meanwhile, pour 2 tablespoons cold water into a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the water and let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Strain the berries over a small bowl, reserving the juice. Microwave the gelatin for 20 seconds or until melted. Stir the gelatin and 1 tablespoon corn syrup into the berry juice. Fold in the berries and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Peel the peaches and puree in a food processor with a tablespoon of sugar and remaining corn syrup. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Using an electric mixer with the whisk attachment, whip the cream and ½ cup sugar until stiff. Stir the vanilla into the yogurt, then gently fold into the whipped cream.
  6. Dollop the blackberry an peach mixtures on top of the whipped cream mixture.
  7. Spoon the fool into parfait glasses and refrigerate for half an hour. Garnish with extra fruit, if desired.
