  • 2 cups finely chopped fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 to 4 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • How To Cook:
    1. Place the pineapple in a sieve or colander set over a bowl and let it drain for at least 10 minutes.

    2. In a large chilled bowl, whip the cream with a whisk or a rotary or electric beater until it is stiff enough to hold its shape softly.

    3. Taste the pineapple and, depending on its sweetness and your own taste, sprinkle the cream with 1 to 4 tablespoons of confectioners' sugar.

    4. Add the vanilla and continue beating until the cream is stiff enough to form firm, unwavering peaks on the beater when it is lifted from the bowl.

    5. Chill the whipped cream and the pineapple separately until you are ready to serve them. (Tightly covered with plastic wrap, whipped cream can be kept for an hour or so.)

    6. At the last possible minute, fold the pineapple into the cream with a rubber spatula, blending them together gently but thoroughly. Spoon the fool into chilled individual dessert bowls or parfait glass and serve immediately.

    NOTE: Mango may be substituted for the pineapple.
