Raspberry fool is a classic English dessert that has been around for centuries. The earliest known recipe for raspberry fool dates back to the 16th century, and it is thought to have originated in the town of Tisbury in Wiltshire. The dish was originally made with fresh raspberries, cream, and sugar, and it was served as a light summer dessert.
Over the years, the recipe for raspberry fool has evolved and there are now many different variations of the dish. Some recipes use cooked raspberries, while others use a combination of fresh and frozen raspberries. Some recipes also call for the addition of other fruits, such as blueberries or strawberries.
