Time to cook….Borscht

One of the foods that I LOVE here in Poland is the Beet Soup or as they say call it Barszcz.  We have eaten this at a few different places and well each place makes it different, no two have been exactly the same.  And if search for recipes you will bring up hundreds all cooked just a bit differently.

So here is just one way to make it….

Ingredients: 2 or 3 mushrooms, 1 lb beets, 4c vegetable stock or fish stock, 1 lg apple, 1-2 c beet sour, 1 clove garlic, 1/4 c dry red wine, salt, pepper, lemon juice.

Slice mushrooms.

Next, peel and chop the apple.

Now, peel the beets and grate them or if you have this AMAZING Tupperware chopper like you, you put them in it and start turning. REMEMBER beets do stain things if you are careful!

I turned my 5 times and this is what I had. Perfectly grated beets!

Mix the grated beets, chopped apple and mushrooms with the 4 cups of stock in a big pot.

Mix together. Yes, I forgot to add the bouillon to the water before I poured it in, so that is what the brown sugar looking stuff is. Mix in beet sour. Don't have beet sour then just add more water and more grated beets!

Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes.

Add crashed garlic, and red wine and simmer for 2 more minutes. You don't have too but I wanted to make sure the alcohol was cooked out.

After simmering you are going to stain the soup so it is now a broth.

Lastly, add salt, pepper and lemon juice until you achieve just the right tangy taste you like!

AND if you want to make it more of a meal add some little ravioli's (uszka).

The soup with the ravioli’s feed about 4 people.

So what is your favorite soup to eat?  

BUT  wait if you going to cook you are going to an apron just like this right….
