    I had no idea what to do with my beets before they went bad. I thought of freezing them and using them for smoothing later... thank God for Yummly and Faith for this recipe!!! I did not use meat and used vegetable broth instead. Tasty and comforting! Really really liked it, I did not know the dish or have ever heard of it so I am super happy with the result.

    Really good. Served with fresh crusty bread and corn on the cob. 3 yr old was not a fan but still ate some.

    absolutely wonderful! With that dolop of sour cream, heavenly. I use Beef stock, and a touch of butter...

    Good recipe. Personally I would tone down the cider and add a dash more allspice and another bayleaf. Works as a fantastic base recipe for borcht with beef.

    Made some slight modifications — carmelized the onions and added a lot more black pepper. Soup turned out hearty, smooth, and well balanced between the sweetness of the veggies and the sourness of the vinegar.
