    Cajunmommy's Note:

    I have a friend in Russia, and she did me the honor of giving me a copy of a true Russian borsh recipe (I am guessing thou that each recipe might be a little different). This is so good! I hope you enjoy!

      I love Borsch. My sons girlfriend is from Russia and she makes this for me all the time. I altered it a bit by using Leek Broth. What I did was cut the tops off of 3 large leeks and boiled them down and used the broth to boil the cabbage, carrots, potatos and onions with fresh thyme and cilantro. I barely needed salt and pepper to season. Great recipie but don't forget the sour cream
