    Never change the recipe for a traditional Russian Ukrainian dish; this is a grave insult.

  2. MsUa125 says:

    Borshch is a traditional Russian and Ukrainian food made with meat. It is not meant to be made without it. Therefore this is not borshch. I know this because I am from Ukraine.

    that’s wrong to play with food

    Thank you! I was so happy to see what a great response I got from this video. It’s cool that so many people are interested in seeing where food comes from. Farmer Johnson is a really cool dude doing some amazing work out there.
    Thanks for writing!

    Great vid Hilah! I work in the wholesale produce/food biz so I have a deep appreciation for the work that Mr. Johnson does on that farm. To grow specialty veggies like the varietal beets and tomatoes is an art form that is lost on most folks these days. Thanks for showcasing his work and for being the totally awesome cooking babe that you are. We love ya!

  17. nirvgardengod says:

    you got the beet !!

  18. hilahcooking says:

    No, I don’t think they re-use seeds year to year. Partly because he likes to try new varieties all the time. You should make you some borscht!

  19. JoeHell67 says:

    i never hat Borscht, maybe it’s about time!
    Nice Farm, that Tractor looks interesting, the front wheels look bigger than the rear ones, i haven’t seen that to often…
    do they get seeds from their own crop?
