Hamburger red groats

Rote Grütze, also called Rode Grüdd, is originally a regional sweet dish from northern Germany.


Various red fruits such as cherries, raspberries, blackberries, currants, strawberries and others, are cooked with sugar, fruit juice and starch to obtain a creamy fruit pulp. It is important to balance sour fruits (currants) with sweet, aromatic fruits like strawberries.

Typically, this dessert is served with milk, cream, yogurt or vanilla sauce, it can also be served with a rusk. However, red fruit jelly also tastes great with vanilla ice cream or as a filling for an egg cake/pancake.

Newer variations are yellow and green groats, which are prepared in the same way with appropriately coloured fruit.
