Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
The last time I went to a Ukrainian church bazaar, the list of lunch offerings definitely said “borscht” and definitely had nothing that looked like beetroot. I thought I had merely missed it.

Perhaps the silkiest home-made soup I have ever had the pleasure to sip was a Polish borscht as deep red as a fine claret, with a blob of sour cream in the middle of the bowl. It had just the slightest tang of vinegar, or perhaps lemon juice. Of course the recipe was a closely held family secret. I did not dare to ask.
