Borscht (Russian: борщ; borshch; Yiddish: בורשט; borsht, Polish: barszcz) is a red soup of Eastern European origin. It is made from beets, onions, leeks, parsley, celery, Polish sausage, and is usually served with sour cream. It can be served warm or chilled.

It is usually associated with Ashkenazi Jews, who usually eat it chilled. The most popular brand of store-bought borscht is Manischewitz.
