Kissel from corn starch turns out juicy, viscous and fragrant, especially if you brew it from berries, for example from a white currant. This drink is ideal not only for lunch or snack, but for dinner, it will be enjoyed even with children.
Citric acid or lemon juice in currant beverages is best not to add, since berries have a characteristic sourness.
Remember that corn starch is less viscous than potato starch, so about 1 to 6 tablespoons will be needed for 1 liter of liquid. without top. Sugar add to your taste, if desired, you can remove it from the ingredients and instead introduce honey into the jelly, but only after the beverage has cooled down to 35 ° C.
Prepare these ingredients.
Berries pour into a bowl, pour water, rinse, remove all tails, leaves, stems.
Pour the peeled berry mass into a saucepan.
Pour in the sugar. You can add a little vanilla sugar.
Pour hot water and place the container on the stove, turning on the maximum heat.
Bring the compote to a boil and boil for 10 minutes until the berries become soft.
In a separate bowl, mix the cornstarch with 50 ml of cold water. It’s cold, because in a hot liquid, the starch will lump into lumps, and you’ll have to pour it! Carefully mix the starch in the water.
Reduce the heat to a minimum, pour the starch liquid in a thin trickle into a saucepan and mix immediately.
Drink on your eyes will become thick. But since we introduced cold water, the kissel still needs to warm up!
Leave the saucepan with a drink on minimal heat for about 1-2 minutes, until such a foam forms on the surface of the jelly, but the boil does not bring it to the boil! Turn off the heat, lightly cool the kissel, stirring so that no film forms on its surface.
Pour into a pitcher, glasses, cups, etc.
Serve kisel from cornstarch and berries to the table.
Pleasant to you!
