Kissel is essentially a fruit drink that’s been thickened with a bit of starch. It’s like drinking jello :). Kissel is a popular after-dinner drink in Russia and can be served hot or cold. I like my kissel hot, perfect for winter!
I’ve written in an earlier post about my Rhubarb find at Saturday’s Farmer’s Market and how to turn it into a delicious crisp. Today I decided to venture into the land of childhood favourites with kissel. It came out great! Delicious and warming, highly recommended.
- 1 cup of chopped Rhubarb (can also add strawberries or apples)
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar (or honey)
- 3 cups of water
- 2 tablespoons of corn or potato starch
