Polish cold beet soup recipe calls for "beet concentrate". Is it available commercially or do I have to make it? If so, how? Thanks.

Cool! Thanks. I don't have a juicer. :(
We have been in Poland where it has been HOT. Loving these cold soups, the beet one and also one with cucumber, dill and/or mint! Wanted to recreate at home. Thank you!

Ooh, those sound refreshing. I just searched online and a couple brands came up, one was on Amazon. Seems like a standard Polish product... I noticed at least one had salt and some spices added (didn't say which ones). Good luck!

I've never seen beet concentrate but it may be available in a health food store or a vitamin shop. If you have a juicer, then peel raw beets and juice them. This will create a concentrate. Alternatively you could food process the beets until they are completely pureed. Then strain it to get a concentrated liquid. To get 1 cup of beet juice you'll need about 1 1/2 pounds of beets
