This RUSSIAN/DOUKHOBOUR BORSCHT originated with my Russian Grandmother who was a vegetarian. Traditionally, the Russian/Doukhobours used about 1 pound of butter and at least 3 cups of whipping cream. I finally was able to make numerous adjustments to the ingredients and then reduce the amount of butter and whipping cream so that the Borscht tastes just as good, but not as rich. The procedure is rather lengthy, but is worth every bit of that time. The Borscht may be canned or frozen in containers.The original Russian Borscht had meat in it and also they used many red beets.
