Borscht

The history of Borscht is surprisingly detailed and spans over centuries. I’m proud to say my wife of 61 years made her own version of delicious Borscht. Since she had a very tender tummy, my wife avoided the key characteristics that make up a traditional Borscht. Borscht is always characterized by a slightly sour taste and traditionally this sourness came from fermented beets. It can be smooth or lumpy, and I prefer it blended.
