A sturdy soup, made of ingredients that are available right through the winter. This version uses an interesting method to preserve the color of the beets and adds a touch of fresh tomato to balance the flavors and texture. I think the pot boils way too fast here— the meat is apt to get tough and/or stringy. There's rather a lot of sugar and vinegar, but suit your own taste.
From a 1983 Hallmark Special. Alice is Kate Burton, Richard Burton's daughter. Richard Burton died a year later, in 1984. His daughter is still active in film and television. She was, perhaps, too old and too knowing for the role of Alice, but this is an interesting scene.
A rather romantic view of life in rural England during WWII. "Land girls" were young women who volunteered to take the place of men on the farms. A fair number of them were clueless when they arrived, but the film will make that and more quite plain.
Chinese food, where the ingredients are cut into small pieces, cooks very fast. This recipes also works well with thin-sliced breast of chicken. Some people prefer red sweet peppers, rather than green. That works, too.
