Summa Borscht (Mennonite Farmer Sausage and Potato Soup) Preparation
Boil ham bone and farmer sausage in water for approx. 2 hours. Cool. Take fat off the top.
Add beet leaves, green onions, dill greens, potatoes and salt and pepper. Keep at a low boil until potatoes are cooked. Add creams after and cook until thickened.
I don't use the ham bone, just the farmer sausage. Make sure it is the Mennonite Farmer Sausage. I also don't put in the green onions as my husband doesn't like them and I don't put in the sour cream as I don't like the sour taste. My husband likes the sour taste so he just adds some vinegar to his bowl instead of the sour cream. I use 1 cup Whipping Cream instead of Cereal Cream and then I don't have to mix it with the flour. It always tastes better the next day.
