    History of the dish

    Shchi is a type of refueling soup considered to be a Russian dish. So before literally all the stews were called, and later they began to call only soups with the addition of cabbage. The name of this soup is consonant with the Old Russian word "sto", which literally means food. In fact, from the moment of its appearance, cabbage soup was a thick and hearty drink, a brew that was seasoned with kapusta and sorrel, which made it sour first of all and only then nourishing and tasty. It is the acid that remains a prerequisite for the taste and today. True, depending on the preferences of the hostess, the soup can still be more or less sour.

    As in antiquity, since the 9th century, cabbage soup remains the main first dish on the Russian table. More precisely, cabbage soup appeared with the advent of cabbage in Russia.
