In the very first fool recipe I ever saw, it was made by pressing bread to the bottom and sides of a tall casserole dish
, and then layering raspberries that were macerated with sugar and bread, with the final layer being bread. A plate was place on top of the bread to weight it down, and then a bag of beans or peas was placed on top of that. So you are probably remembering right.
