Borscht






Borscht

3 good sized square ribs or meat of choice (my mom uses chicken)
1 head green cabbage – shredded
3 or 4 mid sized beets – grated
1 large onion diced
2 cloves minced garlic
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tbsp sugar
1 large can tomato juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut ribs, wash and put in good sized pot (I used a stock pot)
Cover ribs with water and bring to a boil removing scum that forms on the surface.
Add cabbage, onion, beets and garlic and allow to simmer until the meat is nearly cooked (approximately 1 – 1.5 hrs) Salt and pepper to taste.
Add tomato juice, lemon, and sugar
Cook another ½ hr – 45 minutes. Adjust seasonings.

Note: If you add the tomato juice too early on in the process the meat won’t be as tender. This soup makes a large volume and is terrific served with a boiled potato per serving. StumbleUpon

dang!! where do you find the time to cook so much?? I figured your food blog would be on hiatus with you being gone and all - but alas there are 5 new posts!! I think I liked the banana muffins the best minus the chocolate chips.. I hate chocolate.

This is my mom's post.

You hate chocolate? My aunt hates all things sweet. I don't get it.
