When summer berries are in season, make this German-style compote, Rote Grutze.
1. Place all the fruit in a saucepan with 2/3 cup water and bring slowly to the boil.
2. Combine the sugar and cornflour with 3 tbsp cold water to form a smooth paste. Gradually stir into the fruit. Cook gently, stirring, until the juices begins to thicken.
3. Transfer to a bowl. Spoon the mixture into individual dishes.
This dish can be refrigerated 1 day before serving. Before storing, sprinkle with a little extra sugar to prevent a skin from forming. Let cool, then refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap. Good with créme anglaise.
