The Story about Kisel
Slavic and European families make Kisel for their kids when they are not well to recover or as a treat. Kisel is a fruit and berry dessert jelly-like or liquid dish made from fresh and dried fruits and berries, fruit and berry juices, syrups, jam, or milk with the addition of potato or corn starch, sugar or honey. Kissel is quick to cook.
Oatmeal Kisel recipes are found in monastery recipes of the 16th century where kisel is mentioned as an indispensable dish during the fasting period: fills in and does not require a lot of cooking time. It is also mentioned as one of the favorite drinks of Kings in historical documents. [WIKIPEDIA]
