I have never heard of Borscht being made with beef. It has always been chicken where I have been. Chickens can be raised in numbers on the small plots of land, while the few cows I saw were always dairy. In fact I saw mostly goats for dairy all over Eastern Europe since they take up less space.

Dsappointing. Most of these are soups (hardly hearty at all) and there are few stews. The better title would be Soups and a Few Stews.

Wow, I loved this soup. So did everyone who i gave a taste to.
It was definitely worth the bit of work it took. It was almost... zen making this on a rainy Saturday with the peeling and the scooping and the chopping.
It took 2 1/2 pie pumpkins. I added the 6 cups of chicken stock to my dutch oven and used an immersion blender.
It went great with a warm baguette.
I was surprised how flavorful the 4 apples made this dish.
