DIRECTIONS

  • I sometimes use spare ribs or soup bone. Put them in a pot. Cover with water. Bring to boil. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour or until meat is tender. If using hamburger, brown in soup pot then add water for soup.
  • Add onion, carrot, cabbage, beet and barley. Simmer until vegetables are cooked.
  • Add beet leaves, peas, salt, pepper, vinegar and dill weed. Simmer for 5 minutes more.
  • Stir in whipping cream. If you don't have whipping cream you can use milk or nothing.
  • Pass sour cream around the table so people can put a spoonful (or two) on top in their bowls. YUM YUM!
