Granny's garden is in full bloom!  I love to get a head start on canning the summers harvest so I don't get caught having to cook non stop for weeks!!!  This borscht has a yummy citrus twist, but the flavours are amazing together:) I hope you enjoy!

  • 6 cups of roughly chopped beets
  • 3 cups of roughly chopped potatoes
  • 2 medium onions
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 limes
  • 1/2 cup  of chopped fresh parsley 
  • Himalayan salt (to taste)

In a large pot add the beets, potatoes, onion and garlic.  Cover the veggies with water or a broth of your choice.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 30-35 mins.  Let cool slightly.

Using your blender add batches of the soup and pulse.  I do some smooth and then some chunky to create a nice texture.  Pour back into the pot after you have blended each batch until your happy with the consistency.  

Next add the juice of 3 limes, chopped parsley and Himalayan salt.  Stir together and warm to desired temperature.

Makes about 10 - 12 cups of soup :)

***Juicy Tip - I like to make this soup in larger batches and set some aside for a quick  lunches or dinners.
