Yellow Borsch!?


Last Sunday I wanted to make Borsch. When I went to the grocery store to buy beets, I found that the only beets they had were golden beets. They are BRIGHT YELLOW in color.
Here they are grated and ready for frying.

They looked especially vibrant next to the orange carrots.

When the soup was done it looked mighty different than the borsch I am used to, but it tasted just as good. The golden beets have a milder flavor than the red ones do. Plus since I used yellow beets, I didn’t look like I had just murdered someone after grating them all up. (Ever cooked with red beets?)

@Leilani: there should be a link in the first paragraph. If that doesn't work, search for it it the "recipes" category on the left sidebar :-)

Yum! How gorgeous are those golden beets!?! I agree about the red beets . . . it is pretty crazy how "bloody" regular beets make everything look when you're cooking with them.

I have never had borsch but I craved it like a mad woman when I was pregnant. I am super excited to try to make it!
