Heyy I just bought some barszcz in a bottle from this Polish shop and it doesn't say how much water to mix with it? And also wondering what I should put into it? The bottle is 300mls btw.

Thankss

If it doesn't says anything on the bottle you'll have make small experiment ;)
Easy way is to make a broth with stock cubes, you could add a bit of smoked bacon (pinch of smoked paprica will do, but that's not "orthodox" ;) ), some marjoram, salt and pepper to tase and then barszcz from that bottle of yours, start with 1/3, stir, try if it;s not "watery", add 1/3 of a bottle more if needed etc.

Some people add dash of winegar and some sugar. I don't.
Have a look at entry in this guy's blog, in english. He's made barszcz, you just use barszcz from a bottle instead of beetroot, ok?

Merged: Red Beet concentrate - how to use it?

I bought a small bottle of red beet concentrate at the local polish cafe/grocery place. Anyway, there are no instructions as to how to use it. So, how much (how many teaspoons, for e.g.) would you use for each cup of water? What I have is Vavel brand.

depends how strong you like it, trial and error the good news is you can add water or concentrate to suit your taste.

To be honest, I don`t know anybody here who uses concentrate - if people do, they keep it secret. Embarassed? It is easy to cook your own borsch with real veg or use fresh or fermented juice.
