Required: One pound of strawberries. Three-quarters of a pint of cream. Sugar to taste.

Rub the strawberries through a sieve, and sweeten the pulp to taste with castor sugar. Add the cream, and stir it in. Beat them together till they are quite smooth.

Pour the "fool" into a glass dish, and, if possible, place it on ice till it is wanted.
