    littlemafia's Note:

    Lovage is the secret to a good Romanian sour soup. Celery leaves are an OK substitution but it's not exactly the same thing. I grow my own lovage leaves in a flower pot. If sauerkraut juice is not available season the soup with lemon juice and make up the amount with water. Traditionally, borsh is added to make the soup sour,which is fermented wheat bran. Cooking time depends on how quick the meat is boiling.
