    This takes a lot of time and attention, but is from what I understand a fairly authentic Russian Borscht.

      Although I haven't made this actual recipe I have been served a lovely borscht by my partners ex MIL (who is Latvian). After seeing Injustice's review I called the ex MIL and asked how she made her borscht. Apart from using pork necks rather than loins her ingredient list was almost identical. Seeing that I loved her version I am giving you 5 big stars!! Happy cooking and thanks for posting your recipe :)
