One person called this dessert, Rubies in Springtime. This would be fun if you used the red fruits.
2 1/4 lbs currants or raspberries or brambleberries or strawberries or sour cherries or plums (assorted red fruits, in any combination)
1/2 cup sugar (or more to taste, depending on the tartness of the fruit)
1 quart water
25 minutes 10 mins prep
Wash fruit and pick through for stems (reserve 3/4 cup).
Combine the remaining fruit with water (reserving 1 cup), and sugar in a saucepan.
Stir corn starch into reserved water until dissolved and stir into the juice.
Eat Rote Grütze either hot or cold and serve with cold milk or cream.
