Strawberry fool

Strawberry fool on Near the Shrine is the Bridge of the Rosaries built to perpetuate the memory cf an ice span over the St. Lawrence, believed to have been miraculously formed in ; the bridge is decor ated with large rosaries. The harbour at Three Rivers is as important as regards tonnage handled as the harbour at Quebec. There are two milesr of quay, and on the water front stands a two milhon bushel elevator. m.

So simple, but so yummy. Lovely English strawberries, hand-picked from a local farm, are best. Presentation is important – vintage glass is very now (I picked up these lovely red glasses from a local secondhand shop for £6).

I prefer the slightly sour flavour of creme fraTche (and you can use it from the carton to save on washing up), but lightly whipped double cream is traditional.

Serves 4

* 300g lovely ripe strawberries, hulled and washed

* 2-3tbsp icing sugar

* tiny squeeze of lemon juice

* large carton of creme fraTche 6 more strawberries, chopped, plus a few slices, to decorate

Puree the strawberries, sugar and lemon in a food processor until smooth. Swirl with the creme fratche and the chopped strawberries and pour into glasses. Chill. Serve decorated with the strawberry slices.
