“This is from a funny, old cookbook that looks like a coloring book. Never mind that. My husband was educated in Russia and says this is not exactly authentic, but look good. According to him, the borscht he saw prepared was made using a huge marrow bone that was dragged out every time because it was "still good". They built some kind of contraption with a large stick and string so the marrow bone was easily pulled out of the soup for another use.”
