I agree with you, Uncle Bill, that it is not really Hungarian, but it is, however, the best NOT Hungarian Borscht we have ever had. I didn't have any fresh beats, so used 2 cans of beets with liquid. Everything else was followed to the letter. It was a great tasting soup! I am so glad that I made this, as over the holidays everyone in the house was ill. This was all we had made up and we ate this morning, noon and night. It is our new "chicken soup"! Will have this again when we can enjoy it while we're healthy.
Fantastic!! Little Hungarian restaurant close by closed their doors after 30 years. I was lost. Where will i go for lunch or take out for Fridays dinner now? I'v found it.Great recipe. Will be in my Cookbook for life. Bill TYVM.
