This is the closest recipe I have found to a soup that my Great-grandfather use to make and he was from the Ukraine & my Great-grandmother was from Hungaria. The only substitutes I made was I added a can of tomato paste and I used ham and it tasted just like what I could remember! Thanks for post and helping me relive a childhood memory!
