Rote Grütze #3   (Raspberries, Red and Black Currants, and Cherries)

Rote Grütze is a specialty from Northern Germany. It is a dessert made with fresh red fruits, along with sugar, thickeners, fruit juice, and often liquors. It is often served with whipped cream or a vanilla sauce.

Historically, this dish was made with grits and fruit juice (without the addition of whole fruits), which made it very grainy and heavy. This is where the name Rote Grütze came from - it means "Red Grits" in German.

3 tablespoons Sugar
3/4 cup Grape Juice
3 tablespoons Kirschwasser
1/2 cup Red Wine
3 - 4 teaspoons Cornstarch
3/4 lb Mixed Red Berries (such as Strawberries, Red Currents, Raspberries)

Combine sugar, red wine, Kirschwasser, and grape juice in a heating pot. Bring to a simmer. Dissolve the cornstarch in a little water and mix until smooth. Drizzle the cornstarch mixture into the hot liquid, mixing continuously. Bring back to a simmer and allow mixture to thicken to the desired thickness.

Serve cold with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
