  1. During the cold war, we were told this is all the Commies had to eat, just one bowl a day. Then of course we were shown our fields full of amber waves of grain, huge bread factories, acres of beef, etc.

    Keep the truth going E.R.

  2. I make this delicious soup all the time. Mine comes out a little more orange but that is because I like to add a little more carrots.

  3. My grandmother use to make this when I was a little kid, and the Local bakery would produced the good Russian Rye bread to go with it. That would be 1965. After that my grandmother had trouble taking care of herself. From 62 to 65 she lived with Mom me and my brother, and all that stuff they use to make. Those were the days, Grand Mom was born in Minsk,It was Imperial Russia then, and she was 93 when she passed on in 69. Lots of White Russians and Poles settled were I grew up in the United States, later they would come from the Soviet Era. Each brought value and tradition with them. Now All I need is to find that Borsch again!

  4. I was a bit disappointed to see ER posting food… but, everybody’s so sociable when food comes up. I like it.

    Anybody care to share some recipes?
