Phew – long name, eh? But that’s the only way I could think of to describe this dish. In German it is simply called ‘Rote Grütze’ 😉
This recipe is based on a dessert that my grandma used to dish up after lunch when I was a kid. In Germany it is called ‘Rote Grütze’, but there are a few variations of it – depending on where you come from.
My recipe is based on polenta – an awesome gluten-free alternative to Semolina.
It is also very simple and quick to do.
For 4 portions you’ll need:
1/3 cup (red) fruit syrup + 1 3/4 cup water
OR 1/3 cup red fruit juice (such as black current) + 1 3/4 cup water
3 heaped tablespoon polenta (approx. 40g)
Pour all ingredients into a medium sized pot and bring to boil on low heat, stirring constantly.
Once it is boiling, simmer for approx. 2 minutes and take of the stove to let soak for a few minutes.
Bring to boil again and let simmer for another 2 minutes.
Transfer to dessert bowls and let it cool down to room temperature.
Chill before serving.
Enjoy it with some vanilla custard sauce or vanilla ice cream. Yummy! :)
