DIRECTIONS

  • In a large soup pot, boil meat and bones in water. Remove the foam. Cook on a low boil or high simmer for about 1 hour.
  • Add the beets, carrots, onions, cabbage to the soup. Add water if needed. Cook another 45 minutes, or more if you'd like.
  • Add sour salt or lemon juice and salt, bring to a boil again, and simmer another hour.
  • TASTE the soup. Add sugar/honey slowly, until it is the taste you like. It will take more than you think to get that wonderful sweet-sour taste. Cook another 30 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, cook another 15 minutes.
  • Eat with hearty bread.
