Ingredients:1 can beef broth / buillon
1 can shoestring beets
1 c shredded cabbage
2 Tbsp minced onion
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
Preparation:Serve chilled with sour cream.
Notes:I love borscht. My mom made it a lot as a kid.

I don't think she used the Borsch recipe from Betty Crocker's ... but only because I don't remember cabbage in it, and BC's recipe has cabbage (Above)

The Joy of Cooking echos my bias that borscht is properly beef stew ... although they describe it as "meaty" which I wouldn't expect peasant food to be ... although I'm just assuming, being that beets are a root crop, that borscht was peasant food.


I'm taking the bones from the recent pork shoulder I made pulled pork with ... and using them as the basis for a heretical borscht. This probably wouldn't be too bad, except I had already let the bones stew in the pulled pork, and so it's Gonna Be Different.
