I love the Rote Grutze - red berry dessert that is made in Germany and the Nordic countries. This weekend, I had a huge pile of blackberries, so I made a similar dessert. I don't have exact measurements.
Fresh blackberries (about 9 cups)
Sugar (about 3 cups)
Polenta (about 1 1/2 cups quick cooking italian polenta)
Whipped Cream (optional)
Take your freshly picked blackberries, and process through a food mill to get rid of seeds. Heat the juice slowly and add sugar to taste. When mixture boils add polenta slowly, until it is the consistency you want.
Spoon into dessert cups. Chill. Serve with whipped cream. It is a delicious summer treat!
