Why borscht turns out pale

The color of borscht depends primarily on how you prepare the beets for the dish. Be sure to fry the vegetable in a frying pan so that it releases its juice - then the borscht will be rich and attractive. Also, don't ignore the acid. Be sure to add lemon juice while stewing the beets. This will improve not only the color but also the flavor.

Why the broth is not rich

Fatty meat is best suited for the dish. For example, pork. And if you have chicken, it's better to use it for other dishes.

Many people are convinced that borscht needs to be cooked long enough. But this is a big mistake. Remove the dish from the heat when the vegetables are soft. If they are overcooked, everything will simply boil over and turn into porridge.
