  • 4 cups beets, peeled and grated
  • 2 cups beets, peeled and 1/4" dice
  • 4 cups beet greens, shredded (only the green leaves, not the center stem)
  • 16 cups chicken stock (or 8 cups chicken stock and 8 cups water)
  • 1 lb kielbasa or mini smoked sausages, cut into bit size pieces
  • 8-10 hard boiled eggs, quartered
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar
  • 4 cups cooked potatoes, 1/2" – 3/4" cubed
  • 1 bunch fresh dill, chopped
