Strawberry Fool

I’m a fool for fools.  Strawberry fools, that is.  And don’t forget flummery either.  Our strawberry garden bed has gone CRAZY and is alive with little green berries.  I can hardly wait for them to turn red!  Until then, I’m only somewhat happy with the not-as-tasty ones from the store.  But I thought I should share this recipe so you have it when your berries are ready!  Try it, and you’ll be a fool for fools too! : )
STRAWBERRY FOOL
1 lb frozen strawberries (unthawed) or fresh
1/4 to 1/3 cup granulated sugar, depending on sweetness of berries
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp instant clearjel (optional, just stabilizes the whipped cream so you can make it ahead of time)
1 tsp vanilla
Puree the strawberries with the granulated sugar in a blender or food processor.
Whip cream with powdered sugar and clearjel to stiff peaks.  Add vanilla.
Measure out about 1 cup of the pureed strawberries and fold into the whipped cream, leaving some streaks.  Mix in more to taste.  Cover and refrigerate or serve immediately.
