    Sydney Mike's Note:

    This recipe came originally from the cookbook Ten: All the Foods We Love...and Ten Recipes from Each, & I found it published in the Food Section of the 27 May 2009 issue of the Los Angeles Times. Preparation time includes neither the 2 hours needed for the berries to set nor the 2 hours for the blueberry fool to chill!

    FOR THE SALAD

    FOR THE FOOL

    Directions:

    1. 1
      FOR THE SALAD: In a large, nonreactive bowl, combine blueberries, blackberries, lemon juice & sugar, then set aside for 2 hours at room temperature for juices to develop.
    2. 2
      Shortly before serving, toss berry mixture with chopped mint.
    3. 3
      FOR THE FOOL: While salad is developing the juices, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, cook 1 cup of blueberries & 1/4 cup sugar for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved & berries have softened.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat & transfer berries to a medium bowl to cool completely. (To speed the process, chill berries in the frig for about 20 minutes or about 5 minutes in the freezer.).
    5. 5
      Add remaining cup of blueberries to the cooled blueberries & set aside.
    6. 6
      While the berries are cooling, in a large mixing bowl & with a hand mixer, whip together the cream, the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar & the vanilla to form soft peaks.
    7. 7
      Add creme fraiche & continue beating until it is combined & soft peaks are again formed.
    8. 8
      With a rubber spatula, GENTLY fold the blueberries into the whipped mixture & creating a marblized effect ~ DO NOT OVERMIX!
    9. 9
      Refrigerate, loosely covered for not more than 2 hours before serving.
    10. 10
      When ready to serve, spoon 1/2 cup of fruit salad into each of 6 dessert bowls & top with a generous portion of the fool.

      This was so refreshing, and well worth the effort. I made it for my friends yesterday, and it was a big hit! Unfortunately there was no leftovers so I can't tell you how it keeps for the next day!
