Blackberry Blueberry Fool with Vanilla Bean

Serves 4


6 ounces blackberries

6 ounces blueberries

¼ cup sugar

Juice of ½ lemon

Kosher salt

2 cups heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1 vanilla bean, seeds removed

2 tablespoons Marcona almonds, roughly chopped


Combine berries, sugar, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl, toss and allow to sit at least 20 minutes until sugar dissolves.

Meanwhile, whip cream until starting to thicken, then add powdered sugar, vanilla bean seeds, and about ½ teaspoon salt. Whisk until soft peaks form. Fold in about ¾ of the berries gently. Divide the whipped cream mixture evenly among 4 glass cups and top each with remaining berries and Marcona almonds.
