Made an all blackcurrant version of rote gruetze which turned out quite well. Might use a little more cornstarch next time, to create a thicker pudding;)
Cooked 4 cups of blackcurrants, 3/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 1/2 cups of water in a saucepan over medium heat for 15 minutes. Stirred 2 tbsp of cornstarch into 1/2 cup of cold water, then poured cornstarch mixture into the saucepan. Stirred the mixture and continued to cook over medium heat for a few minutes, until the mixture had thickened and become shiny.
Goes well with rice pudding, vanilla ice cream, angel food cake, etc.
