This is a German recipe that I learnt when I lived there and it is a useful way of serving up a fruit dessert if you have a glut of red berry fruits. The fruit is simmered in wine but for children you can use apple juice or another fruit juice, or even water if there is nothing else. Can be served warm or cold. Very similar to Kissel.
I've only used white wine but I'm sure red wine would also be good although a bit more sugar may be needed.
