Beet “sailed” to the Principality of Kiev from Byzantium in about the X-XI centuries, and then spread to the north, in the lands of Vladimir, Suzdal, Novgorod. For four centuries, by the XIV century, it gained popularity among our ancestors: numerous records speak about this, for example, in shop books and receipts and consumables of monasteries. What did you do with beets? It was baked in an oven and served for tea. They ate, sliced ​​in circles with ginger, before dinner, and the tops were added to soups. And, of course, cooked borscht, references to which date back to the 16th century. And already in the 20th century, beets became space food: in 1975, during the Apollo Soyuz test project, Soviet cosmonauts treated American astronauts in orbit with beetroot soup made of tubes.

Both recipes (borsch and vinaigrette) are in the Live up! recipes. Continue reading
