How to Make Packet Kisiel

A Photographer/Blogger/Pole/Mom and I have been talking about Polish desserts lately.  We talked about Budyn and Nalesniki and now, Kisiel.

I love Kisiel.  It's a great way to get some sweetness packed with Vitamin C into your little ones.  You can mix fruits into it if you like.  It's inexpensive.  And it's ridiculously easy to make.  If you can boil water and stir, you can make packet Kisiel which can be bought at any Polish store, or other European stores.  And on a cold day like this, a warm dessert is perfect for everyone.

Again, I did not get any financial or gifts from this company.  It's just the packet I have in my cabinet.  And I wanted to translate it for others who cannot read Polish and are interested in making this at home.

Step 1:
Z 0,5 litra zimnej wody odlac pol szklanki. 
From 0.5 liter (2 cups or 500 ml) of cold water pour out 1/2 cup (to the side).

Wsypac zawartosc torebki. 
Pour in the powder from the packet (into the 1/2 cup of cold water).

Dobrze wymieszac. 
Mix well.

Pozostala czesc wody zagotowac.
The remaining water (now 1 1/2 cups) bring to a boil.

Step 2:
Odsunac wode z ognia, wlac rozmieszany proszek. 
Remove the water from heat, immediately add the dissolved powder.

Calosc chwile gotowac, ciagle mieszajac.
While still heating, mix the whole time.  (I do this off the heat, personally)

Step 3: 
Kisiel wlac do salaterek.
Put Kisiel into salad bowls.

Polecamy podawac ze swiezymi lub mrozonymi owocami.
We recommend serving with either fresh or frozen fruit mixed in.  (I do too)

Brilliant! Me and the missus bought a few packs at the local polski sklep but had no idea how to prepare it. We assumed it was a sort of add milk and whisk affair :S Thanks so much for your translation, the internet exists for such content.

Thank you very much for your helpful instructions! I bought Vanilla Budyn from Poland and I have had problems preparing it. Google Translate instructed to add 1/2 cups of pee... :D
