Anna’s kitchen : Rote Gruetze

April 8, 2016 / 0 Comments

Now that spring is here I wanted to share one of my favourite deserts recipes with you. Rote Gruetze (red berry compote) is a typical desert from Hamburg.

Rote Gruetze 

400g strawberries

400g raspberries

400g red currants

2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar

2 tablespoons of cornflower


You can use fresh berries in the summer or frozen mixed berries.

Use equal amounts of strawberries, raspberrries and red currants

Boil all the fruit in a big pot on a stove for about 5 minutes,

sweeten with vanilla sugar to taste ( I like it quite tart so use 2 tablespoons) ,

stir in 1-2 tablespoons of cornflower to thicken

remove from the stove and put into a serving bowl , let is cool down and then refrigerate for a few hours ( this keeps nicely over night as well)

I like serving this fresh tart compote with either custard or whipped cream with broken up meringue pieces.
