This borscht was discribed as "a soup by many names" in the Mennonite Foods and Folkways from South Russia" by Norma Jost Voth. Reading the recipes in this book, one old recipes reads "a grocery sackful of greens", so the amount of greens in this soup may vary. I grew up in a mennonite home but I can't remember ever having this soup. It was later on in life after moving to Winnipeg I got to taste this soup and thought it rather interesting. I mentioned it to Dad one day and he explained -"Weed Soup?!" I guess that is why we never had it at home. Sorrel is used in this soup. It is classified as a wild herb, a perennial herb of the buckwheat family. It gives a sour taste, so added to a soup gives it a distinct, tangy flavor. This soup is good served hot, with a heaping tablespoon of sour cream and a freshly baked slice of brown bread.
