Borscht is a sweet and sour soup made with beets (that turn it red), served hot or cool. It may or may not include shreds of pot roast and it can be broth-thin or packed with carrots, potatoes, and onions. Sour cream and fresh dill are its usual garnishes. Borscht is so associated with Jewish culture that the term “borscht belt” refers to summer resorts in the Catskills where New York Jews used to vacation.
