Inspired by Levin from Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, about half the Tolstoy Seminar met at the home of Dr. Preslar to make Green Borsch using field greens like in days of old. The traditional Russian soup contained onions, carrots, potatoes, rutabagas, wild nettles, sorrel, lambs quarter, plantain, wild onion scapes, fennel, parsley, dandelions, spinach, (french sorrel too), Lemon Thyme, home made broth, a bit of salt, pepper, apple cider vinegar, a tablespoon of butter, a dollop of smetana (sour cream), garden dill, and crusty sour dough whole wheat bread dipped in olive oil with Himalayan pink salt. Many had seconds!
