Sunday evening we spent relaxing and enjoying dinner at Sally's house. Sally made southwest shrimp and we brought a homemade strawberry kissel which we spooned over vanilla soy ice cream. Kissel is a sweetened fruit puree thickened with either cornstarch or potato flour, which gives it a soft-custard texture. It can be served hot or cold, usually topped with cream or a custard sauce. Instead of cornstarch we used kudzu root (also called kuzu root among other things) and used our kissel as the topping. Fresh strawberriesand raspberries and a few frozen blueberries, a little cranberry juice,only 1/4 cup of sugar. Easy and very delicious.
