Fruit Kisel

Kisel is a cold, thick liquid dessert very popular in Russia. There are many different recipes, and there are no hard and fast rules about ingredients. Try different combinations of fruit, making sure to mash the fruit into a smooth puree. More potato starch may be needed to thicken the kisel if very juicy fresh fruits are used.
