Beets (with or without Leaves)
2-3 Bay Leaves
1 liter Broth (any kind you prefer)
2-3 tablespoons Marjoram
Barszcz Czerwony Concentrate (buy in Polish stores)
Scrub Beets well and boil in water until tender. Peel and slice.
Put in large Soup pot. If using Leaves, rinse, chop up into bite sizes and place in pot. Pour in Broth and enough water to cover Beets with an additional inch of liquids. Add Bay Leaves, Salt, Pepper, and Marjoram. Bring to boil and cook for a few minutes so that flavors can blend together.
Take off heat, add Barszcz Czerwony Concentrate to taste. For storage, can be placed in jars which have been rinsed in hot water & sterilized. Allow to cool on counter and keep in refrigerator for up to a couple of weeks. For tips on safe canning methods
