I made Borscht. Because I’ve never done it or tried it before, and it keeps me busy.
Tastes a bit different than I thought. Still quite heavy, potatoes and all, but with a pleasant sour taste thanks to the sorrel and dill. Flavors blend well with the beets too, of course.
Pleasantly surprised at the depths of flavor in the dish, even when made by a novice such as myself.
I know there’s a bunch of different kinds of Borscht, but this one is from an old lady in Ukraine who considered herself, as well as this dish, Russian, through and through.
