Nutritional values

Sea buckthorn, with its vitamin C content which is 10 times higher than lemons, is a power defender. And there's more to it than that: Lots of vitamin E with an anti-aging effect, lots of beta-carotene as a free radical scavenger and quantities of B vitamins that are otherwise only found in animal foods.

Tip for the calorie-saving programme: sweetener instead of sugar! And a shopping tip: If possible, use organic grapes, because conventionally grown fruit is often contaminated with residues of chemical pesticides.

Kitchen utensils

1 Pot, 1 Small skillet, 1 Baking sheet, 1 Bowl, 1 Small bowl, 1 Measuring cups, 1 Cutting board, 1 Small knife, 1 Tablespoon, 1 Teaspoon, 1 Wooden spoon, 1 Whisk, 1 Hand mixer, 1 Food processor, 1 Citrus juicer

Preparation steps

Sea Buckthorn Cream preparation step 1

Rinse grapes, drain and halve. Squeeze juice from lemon. Halve the vanilla-bean half lengthwise. 

Sea Buckthorn Cream preparation step 2

Reserve 4 tablespoons grape juice. Combine remaining grape juice with the lemon juice, honey and vanilla bean pod in a pot and bring to a boil.

Sea Buckthorn Cream preparation step 3

Whisk the cornstarch into the reserved grape juice, then stir this mixture into the boiling juice and return to a boil.

Sea Buckthorn Cream preparation step 4

Stir halved grapes into the boiling liquid, remove from heat and let cool completely in the pot, about 90 minutes.

Sea Buckthorn Cream preparation step 5

Beat together the quark and sugar until creamy, 2-3 minutes.

Sea Buckthorn Cream preparation step 6

Stir the sea buckthorn drink into the quark mixture. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Sea Buckthorn Cream preparation step 7

Finely grind the pumpernickel in a food processor.

Sea Buckthorn Cream preparation step 8

Toast breadcrumbs in a small dry pan over medium heat until slightly darkened, stirring, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool. (Crumbs will continue to crisp as they cool, so be sure not to overcook them.) Divide sea buckthorn cream among glasses, top with grape compote, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and serve.
