Borscht - authentic Polish soup, is also known as Barszcz Czerwony. It's a classic dish that is traditionally served on Christmas Eve. It's made from beets and it has a clean, almost see-through consistency; it can be served in mugs to drink, or in bowls with Polish mushroom "ear" pierogi (coming soon), or Sauerkraut and Mushroom Pierogi.
*Be mindful that some dry mushrooms can be sandy, so allow the sand to fall onto the bottom of the pot or bowl in which they were soaking. You can use some of this water for the broth but use strainer and don't stir the water so the sand stays at the bottom.
