Red Fruit “Jelly” is not really what this is, but the translation suggested it and I couldn’t come up with something better. Jelly is kind of solid while this desert’s consistency is more like a soft pudding.
Where does Red Fruit Jelly come from?
It is a Northern recipe, mostly from North Germany’s region called “Schleswig Holstein” and also from Denmark. It is a cool and refreshing treat on a warm summer day and everybody loves it.
One can make this desert with a single fruit or a mix of fruits. Most common is the use of a variety of berries. In this recipe I used only strawberries – my second favorite, while my absolute favorite is to make Rote Grütze with fresh cherries!
Vanilla Sauce – a must!
Don’t even think about to eat this without vanilla sauce! You would miss out on so much: The combination of the slightly sour fruits and the soft touch of a sweet, real vanilla sauce is what makes it a perfect combination. As a shortcut I sometimes use a package of vanilla pudding and use it acording to the directions but with more milk – it’s an easy way to get to vanilla sauce when you are preparing several things at the same time. In this recipe I will explain how to make it from scratch, it’s not that complicated.
