Sorrel borsch is a popular Ukrainian dish that is prepared in the spring and summer. It is usually based on a rich meat broth. Greens add a refreshing sourness and green color. But once upon a time, this borsch was white in color because it was made with sour milk.

Together with the hostesses of Vinnytsia region, Halyna and Olena, the famous Ukrainian TV presenter Kostiantyn Hrubych cooked white sorrel borsch. He shared the recipe on his Facebook page.
