Rote Grütze is a tasty berry dessert from Northern Germany. It’s particularly popular in summer when all the berries are in season. Served with vanilla sauce, or milk/cream.
6 cups fresh or frozen, unsweetened berries (raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, red currants) - 1/2 cup sugar - 2 tbsp. sago/cornstarch - 1/4 cup cold water - 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice - 1 tsp. vanilla extract
For fresh berries: stem, wash, dry in collander. For frozen: thaw before using. For a smooth pudding, process berries in a blender, 2 cups at a time, until pureed. For chunkier (traditional!), process 3 or 4 cups, and chop the rest, blending with puree. Stir cornstarch or sago in cold water until smooth. Combine berries and sugar in non-stick pan; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir cornstarch mix again, add into berry mix, keep stirring. Reduce heat and let simmer for 3 mins, stirring constantly, until mix starts to thicken. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice and vanilla. Pour into a serving bowl or individual dessert bowls. Cover and chill in the fridge for 24 hours. This is traditionally garnished with a Vanilla Custard Sauce , but you may also use whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or heavy cream.
