Food Friday: Borș

Does the word “borscht” make you think of beet soup?  That’s what I thought, until I was served this tasty soup with cabbage, potatoes, dill and meat (among other ingredients). Asking, I found out that borș (“borsh”) is a soup with a special sour flavoring added to the broth (imagine just a little bit of the sour taste from hot-and-sour soup, mixed in with the flavors above). This ingredient, which is also called borș, is made from fermented wheat bran, and can be homemade or store- bought. It was delicious!

  1. Looks good. I tried it once but it was not made like you described. I hope you can start a recipe file to share when you get home. Love you!
