    Can anyone help with the origins of this word?
    Hi Krolewna and welcome to the forums, :)

    Here's something that I found and may be useful:
    Wyraz kisiel zawiera rdzeń -kis-, który występuje m.in. w wyrazach kis-nąć, za-kis-ić. Jest spokrewniony z wyrazem kwas. Wyraz o zasięgu ogólnosłowiańskim.

    It used to signify something different from what we are wont to-day.

    If you follow the link you'll find more on that.
    :)
