Description: Borscht. Borscht is a type of soup well known in Poland. We are inclined to think of it as invariably a beetroot soup, but there are many versions. It can be clear or creamy and there are many types, many of which contain pickled beetroot and kvass (liquid obtained from fermented beetroot) and flavoured with garlic and lemon. It may be served with potatoes or beans or with uszka or kolduny. A white version popular in Galicia is made with smoked-bacon stock, white sausage, and thickened with sour cream.
Most frequent country: Poland
