“An elderly lady residing in Turkey served this to a friend of ours while he was in that country several years ago. She has since passed away, but her recipe lives on. It is the best Borscht recipe I've ever enjoyed. Serve topped with sour cream, extra dill weed, chopped fresh tomatoes.” - by Puma

If you are on a quest for "authentic" borscht like it is the holy grail, good luck - there are many interpretations. I tried this one because I am not pigeonholed into one type.

I loved it and will make it again and again. Thank you for sharing this!"
