Reviews forRussian Borscht Soup
"My book club read a Russian theme book so what else but to serve a Russian luncheon to the 12 ladies. The Russian Borscht soup was a huge hit as a starter so much so I was requested to send out the recipe!"
"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."
"Absolutely love this recipe! Will definately make it again"
"Very Very Good as close to moms as i've been able to find. tasty, freezes great and wonderful on a winters night."
