This method was taught to my mom by my paternal "baba" so that her son wouldn't starve after they married. My Ukrainian husband has taken a liking to it and with some compromises we've decided this is the best way. It is different than any other method of making this soup than I've ever seen. It is also very - very good! The list of ingredients is daunting, but the procedure is simple, especially if you don't mind a bit of chopping!
