This traditional Danish dessert called
Rødgrød is really simple to make and delicious. If you have berries, a few other ingredients and whip cream you are ready to go!  


 Did you know that....
  • rød means red

Ingredients:
  • 6 cups of frozen or fresh mixed berries
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 a cup of sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup of cold water
  • milk or heavy cream
Kitchen Utensils
  • medium-large pot
  • strainer
  • wooden spoon
  • measuring cup and spoons
  • heatproof bowl 
Instruction:
  • The first step is to cook all the berries.  Pour the water into the pot and add the fruit into the pot.  Bring to boil and cook for about 5 minutes.  The moment it boils put on the lid.  Keep an eye until the berries are cooked. 
  • Once all the berries are cooked we are ready press the mixture through a sieve into a heat proof bowl.  Squeeze and stir until you have strained all the berries out.  You will get a beautiful red color juice. 
  • Pour all of the juices back into the medium size pot.  Turn on the heat again.  Add 1/2 a cup of sugar and stir it. 
  • Next combine the cornstarch with 1/4 water in a small bowl.  This will be used to thicken the rødgrød
  • Add and blend the corn starch mixture which will thicken it. Add a little at a time.  Taste to see if it is sweet enough.
  • Pour into a heatproof glass bowl to cool down. Sprinkle sugar to prevent a skin from forming. Cover and chill in the refrigerator.
  • Once ready to serve ladle into bowls and garnish with either milk or cream. Sprinkle chopped almonds on top.  If desired, sprinkle sugar.
Helpful tip: Add to the left over berries with some sugar to taste. This is great for toast and yogurt.
