Yes there are several versions depending on if it's hot or cold and the ingredients. I put this one together looking at a few recipes. I hardly ever follow a recipe unless it's something the needs exact attention like jelly. Mine is a hot version with fried chopped smoked bacon ends, garlic, shallots, scallions, purple onions , salt, pepper, pinch of cayenne and chicken stock as the base. A few family members were like "Ooooo beets" until they tasted. Then the seconds were asked for.Would that qualify as a Borscht??

Pasta night for a change. Working on the family to have another meat night soon! But this hit the spot anyways!! Was a celebration dinner for not passing a new constitution down here... Its was kinda of like a AOC dream wish list, free everything and we will all live like kings!
