And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to be full. Psalms 78:24-25

Russian Borsch

Now, this recipe may seem strange, & let me tell you, I had my doubts as well. But, this is very tasty and good! I made this for a big group of people, (there were 36 of us & we had other authentic Russian dishes as well). Just cut it in half, or make the whole thing and freeze for later! It does freeze well.

Russian Borsch
Serves 20
1 cube of butter
Caraway & dill seeds
5 onions peeled and chopped
4 veggie cubes
10 potatoes peeled and cubed
8 Tbsp vinegar or to taste
24 beets sliced thin (I used canned)
8 Tbsp honey or to taste
6 carrots peeled and sliced/diced
Fresh dill
2 medium cabbage heads shredded
Sour cream
4 garlic cloves minced

Put all ingredients except sour cream and fresh dill in one big pot. Cook for a few hours on the open fire. Top each serving with sour cream and dill.

I wish I got a picture of it while cooking it, but I wasn't able to get one.
