    annya127's Note:

    Borsh is a traditional Russian soup prepared from beets and cabbage. It is usually served with a spoon of sour cream. There are over 40 varieties of hot and cold borsh that use different combinations of vegetables and meats. This is my grandmother's recipe, which is also, arguably, the best one :)

      * Special Note on Beets: Although beets are the most beautiful rich fuchsia on the inside, their juices will stain everything hot pink, including your hands and cutting board. The best way to prep fresh beets for this recipe is to first peel them with a peeler, cut into thin slices, and finally, layer and cut into matchlike sticks.
    9. 9
      * For Vegetarians: simply substitute 3 cups of chicken broth with water, and omit chicken bouillon for a great vegetarian variation.
