    twissis's Note:

    This recipe has been posted for ZWT II & my source is The intro says: "The term "fool" (also Egyptian for lentils) comes from the English & means essentially a fruit puree folded into a soft custard or whipped cream. You may begin w/any good custard recipe, vanilla pudding or whipped cream." Later he said there were 3 African Fools: Strawberry Fool (Ghana), Peach Fool (Liberia) & Peanut Fool (Nigeria).

      I followed the other reviewer's advice and added the port to the strawberries and sugar. They are absolutely amazing. I let them sit and marinate for about an hour and they turned out to taste wonderful! I just whipped up my whip cream and didn't add any sugar since the berries were already sweetened. Thanks for sharing a treat!! Made for Photo Tag game.

      What a wonderful and easy dessert!! I read tigerduck and evelyn/athens reviews and also put the port wine in the strawberries along with the confectioner sugar. Let the strawberries marinate a bit while the bowl and beater were in the freezer chilling to whip the cream. DH loved this also!

      I read Tigerduck's review before making this recipe and so I decided to add the port to the strawberries and just do a slightly-sweetened whipped cream topping. Delicious blend of flavours - I liked the port in with the berries. Very easy and easy to eat.
