BARLEY MUSHROOM SOUP
Wash barley in cold water several times, until water is clear and not cloudy. Bring about 5 quarts of water to boil. Add barley, turnips, carrots, raw onions, potatoes and bay leaves. Add salt and pepper to taste. Allow soup to simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring often. Do not allow barley to burn to the bottom of the pot. If this does happen, change pots immediately. After 15 minutes of cooking, add crushed tomatoes. Sauté in separate skillet the onions and mushrooms with Mazola oil, until golden brown. Soup is finished cooking when the soup is sort of creamy. Do not allow to cook until it is thick. Use more water and seasoning to thin soup out. When soup is finished cooking add the sautéed onion and mushrooms. When soup is being served sprinkle chopped parsley and dill on top.

Pour hot water over mushrooms, drain and wash. Cover with lukewarm water and soak for 30 minutes or longer. The period of soaking will depend on variety of mushrooms used. Cook the mushrooms in the same water in which they were soaked until they are tender. Cook the onion in oil until slightly wilted. Add the beets, parsley, peppercorns, and water. Cover and cook until beets are barely done. Add the carrots, potato, and celery, and continue cooking for about 15 minutes. At this stage put in the cabbage and cook until it is tender but not overcooked. (Cabbage should retain some crispness). Add the remaining ingredients. Use lemon juice with discretion. Borsch should be mildly tart but not sour. Season to taste. Finally, add the cooked, chopped, or whole mushrooms along with the mushroom stock. Bring to a boil.
