Recipe

When summer berries are in season, make this German-style compote, Rote Grutze.

Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 5 Mins

Ingredients

  • 8 oz (240g) bing cherries, pitted
  • 6 oz (175g) raspberries
  • 6 oz (175g) red currants, stemmed
  • 6 oz (175g) blackberries
  • 6 oz (175g) strawberries, quartered if large
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch

Directions

 

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.

Notes

Prepare ahead:

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.
