To Monzie...this is a traditional Russian borscht. Russian borscht uses the beet more for a bit of color and less for the making the soup to beet-like. My husband is Ukrainian, the cook the beet and dice it and put it in the soup,,,so it is alot more beet filled. My sister in law was Russian. I prefer the Russian borscht. The butter is what gives borscht it's rich flavoring. Russian borscht uses a heavy cream added at the end, so it doesn't curdle. Ukranian borsht uses sour cream...So this is an excellent Russian borscht, I use fresh dill when in season and amounts depend on personal tastes.
