"I tried this borscht recipe and think it's ok.  I just posted a recipe for borscht on my website (www.revivingtraditions.com/russian-borscht) and it?s amazing how different the prep can be. I think everybody?s borcht recipe is different. In fact, my borscht from week to week might even taste different! Borscht just has that reputation. Cheers from a true Russian."
