The recipe below is my interpretation of the way my own Danish mother makes it. So delicious and a welcome to summer.
rødgrød med fløde (red fruit pudding with cream)
2 baskets berries (I used strawberries & raspberries) traditionally its red currants, raspberries, strawberries, cherries or plums (any combination)
3 tablespoons sugar (to taste)
2 tablespoons potato starch flour (or arrowroot powder or cornstarch)
1/4 cup cold water
splash of vanilla extract
lightly whipped cream (its nice barely whipped for this or soft peaks)
Rinse fruit and slice (you can also blend in blender). Place sliced or puréed fruit into stainless steel pan and stir in sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Dissolve potato starch flour (or other) in 1/4 cup cold water and mix in, stirring constantly. Once off burner, stir in a splash of vanilla extract. Pour into large bowl or parfait glasses. Chill thoroughly (3-4 hours). Serve with cream.
