Mamin borsch is more than just a traditional food. Mamin borsch is a return to the roots, back to the carefree childhood, when I was a little boy and little understood. This is a reminder of lost innocence and purity, Paradise on earth, when my mother was still young, and the world is kind and beautiful.

It is like touching their happiness, knowing that you are loved and somebody needs you. This connection of generations.

Every time, when my dear mother is coming to visit me next morning woke up, all the detailed stories about relatives and friends who are born, who is married and who died struggling without disturbing me gather on the job – if it is a weekday, so I always forget the wallet, phone, and the first and the second, or paralyzing me half an hour paralysis on скрипучем kitchen stool, if it is a day of output, – mom first thing starts one of his main ordinances – preparation of huge pots Ukrainian borsch.

The fire is the most large saucepan with water, which only can be found in my холостяцком house liters that way at five, and soaked with white nights квасолей and untreated цибулиной-buoy, vibrating in the middle of the sea-the future of soup – «for the saturation of color and taste – borsch-the waternot broth, and then it is useful». Clean potatoes, Buryak, морква, onion, часныкpotatoes cut into small cubes else rubs on a coarse grater, chopped and put stew on vegetable oil in the most capacious pan with a spoon of vinegar, «Kohler», a spoonful of sugar «to сахарности бурячка», and a little later – a tomato, or if no tomatoes – not the season, then ketchup. In a special way subtle, almost transparent lace, шинкуется cabbage.

After that, all in their mandatory produced with God in a pot of boiling water and квасолей, salted and pepper (lately my dear mother began to prepare his Ukrainian borsch the Mexican style, with chili pepper, paprika and all other varieties of pepper, which only can be found in my kitchen that I, too, like sharp little, sometimes shoot tear between spoonfuls of its enchanting borsch, apparently, not to the place of remembering something sad), mixed with pronouncing some magic spells, try again mixed and covered lid. Now borsch languishing on very low heat for about twenty minutes or thirty. At the end of Maman can add dill and parsley, celery and some herbs, which only able to find in the refrigerator or in the kitchen shelves, making the final touch in this colourful still-life, and then turns off the soup, «to a little настоялся».

While soup is brewing, my dear mother философствуем on the eternal themes, like «Borsch and modern civilization» or «Borsch in the life of different peoples», giving to each other, to utter one mind, at first sight, paradoxical and, nevertheless, proven on personal experience maxims like «Soup is good exclusively in two cases: when the newly prepared and when it настоялся».

Usually I stick to the first option, and not even give borscht brew and one minute so I can’t wait to enjoy it. Pour soup necessarily in a wide bowl (although my mother prefers to eat his капустно-beet extravaganza of «кисушки», the big high Cup) and in small numbers in the European way (know that I violate one of the basic rules of eating Ukrainian borsch «To spoon the soup was, but when on a plate of food for a bit, it always seems delicious). In the middle of a put a spoon of sour cream, peeled clove-other часнычку (in my childhood I liked to grate garlic and salt rye crust), cut a hunk black wet bread-and – «Смачного!»

To me, borsch must be a piping-hot and almost burn – then it tastes better. But he is good in the cold, настоявшемся way, right from the refrigerator in some hot July afternoon. (I remember my relatives once dear wife the way it is, quite hungry for a hot summer day in one sitting умяли whole pot prepared me cold borscht – and then from the pleasure only went).

Ukrainian borsch the Ukrainian суржику: everybody has his own, unique. And in its own delicious. My grandmother, for example, borsch was cooked on a fatty pork broth, with meat on the bone, as I loved my grandfather, on духмяном sunflower oil with the smell of sunflower seeds and adds a dish of dried mushrooms. Her relatives, that in a village near Mykolayiv, adds to the soup liquor fat. And other relatives to always prepare borscht donuts and watered their garlic sauce. Someone vegetables necessarily chops manually, assuring that the right – hand work with nested soul and love. Someone tert on a grater. Someone throws in a pan a couple of whole potatoes and at the end of kneads them with a fork, that the soup was thick.

And in late summer, early autumn soup prepared from tender beet leaves and young vegetables, потомив it on the fire just about ten, fifteen minutes to tender vegetables remained полусырыми. I remember it was such a simple borsch my grandmother preferred starving in the 90s. And this is the borsch prepared and, as soon as I moved in Belarus, and over the border, behind the house, which my wife and I took off, I was surprised to see several rows young beet, considering that she draw means, my. And the strange thing was tongue to swallow so it was delicious.

Talking and the first plate inexorably should plate second. Then he drops quietly off the rolls, without a stop telling me about some distant relative, her friends and acquaintances, or the hundredth time about my grandmother. I reached for a third plate, becoming heavier and lazier with each eaten with a spoon, continuing to savor alternately yushku, thick, похрустывая garlic and wiped нечаянную tear – whether from the Mexican soup, whether from переполняющего me understand happiness. I’m all sorrow and млею simultaneously, man, overjoyed mother’s soup.

Say it’s just a mother’s soup, delicious first course – means to say nothing. Mamin borsch is a religious rite. Ancient family ritual. Silent mother’s Declaration of love and tenderness to his son, without banal and awkward words. Mamin borsch is not just a tasty dish from the far-close of the past, where you grew up, first with a grandmother’s filing, and then with my mother’s, absorbed it almost with mother’s milk, loved before I figured out tasty or not. Mamin borshch is my past. My story. Part of me – whether I like it or not.

And the strange thing, on the water or on a fat pig голяшке, with квасолею and mushrooms or without, red like the first blood or weak orange Kohler, Mamin borsch always tasty, always like the first time. And always like Hello and goodbye – prepared in two cases: when a mother comes and when Mama goes. And if in the first case, I swallow the tears from часныка and spices, that mother donated generously to put in your soup, which harness tongue out at me and the sky, in the second, who knows, maybe I cry and even from something.

God willing, I will be a mother’s soup – piping-hot, vprikusku with garlic, under the familiar балачки about friends and relatives, neighbors and friends. God will give…
