       Title: SCHAV BORSCHT (SORREL LEAVES)
  Categories: Soups, Passover
       Yield: 6 servings
  
       1 lb Schav; (sorrel leaves)
       2 tb Butter; OR  oil
       1 md Onion; finely minced
       6 c  -Water
       1 ts Kosher salt
       2 tb Sugar
       1    Lemon; for juice
       2    Egg yolks; beaten
            Sour cream; for garnish
  
   1. Wash the sorrel thoroughly in several changes of
   cold water. Remove and discard the stems.  Chop the
   leaves into thin ribbons. You can make this with
   spinach but the taste will be different. Sorrel has a
   sour/bitter flavor.
   
   2. Heat the butter or oil in a 3 quart saucepan and
   saute, the sorrel and onions.  Cook stirring, for 10
   minutes until the sorrel is wilted and the onion
   translucent. Add water and salt. Let the soup simmer
   for 25 to 30 minutes more.
   
   3. Remove from heat and stir in sugar.  Add the lemon
   juice 1 tb. at a time, tasting constantly to achieve
   the degree of tartness that pleases you.
   
   4. Beat a tablespoon or two of the soup into the egg
   yolks, then stir egg yolks into the soup.  Reheat the
   soup but do not let it boil after adding the egg yolks.
   
   5. Serve hot or cold, accompanied by sour cream;
   
   NOTE:  This is NOT my family’s favorite soup, but I
   loved it as a child, and nothing quenches your thirst
   on a hot Summer’s day then a good gulp straight from
   the fridge.
