Russian Raspberry Kisel ~ Malinoviy Kisel

Beth Renzetti


Kisel is a thick fruit dessert that is served chilled. Kisel can also be made with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, or plums.

It's sort of a cross between jello & pudding. :)

I combined the prep & cook times then made the cook time = cooling/refrigeration time,
