Rote Grütze
(chilled fruit stew)
Biergarten
Germany - World Showcase - Epcot

Ingredients:

1/2 pound sour cherries, pitted (can use canned)
1/2 pound red currants
1/2 pound raspberries
1/2 pound strawberries, sliced
1/2 pound granulated sugar
8 ounces water
1/4 ounce gelatin powder
1 ounce corn starch

Method of Preparation:

Clean and prepare all fruit, removing stems. In a large saucepan simmer red currants and sugar and half the water until slightly thickened. Then dissolve the gelatin in 2 ounces of the water. Place on the stove and heat until the gelatin dissolves. Then add the cornstarch to the remaining water and dissolve to make a smooth liquid. Slowly pour the dissolved gelatin, the cornstarch and ½ of the remaining fruit into the red currant mixture stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for about one minute. Portion into glasses and chill for at least one hour.

The consistency should not be as firm as jello or as runny as custard, but just that perfect point between. Serve with Vanilla Sauce or cream.
