Borsch (Beet Soup)

Submitted by Teresa Ness

2 lbs. of Country Style Ribs or Pork Ribs
1 Onion, sliced
2 Garlic cloves, sliced

Brown ribs, remove and set aside. Brown onion and garlic. Return ribs to pot.


8 cups water
2 tbsp. Parsley
2 tbsp. Dill
3 Chicken Bouillon cubes
(I freeze parsley and dill from the garden for all winter).

Boil slowly for about 1 hour.
Remove meat and take off fat and bone. Return pieces of meat to soup.


1 Tomato, chopped
5 cups Raw Beets, grated
2 med Carrots, grated
1 large Potato, cubed

Cook another 40 minutes.

Add about 1/4 cup Vinegar or more to taste. Stir in Sour Cream until soup turns a pretty fuchsia color. (Whipping cream is just as good.)

Best served with bread and butter instead of crackers.
