Looking for a Pickle Soup Recipe

Nowski     Jun 21, 2007, 12:53am  #1

I found your site when I was searching for Polish Dill Pickle Soup recipes. I found several sites that had a recipe for it and they were all pretty much the same recipe. Was wondering if anyone had their own recipe that they'd like to share.

Ooooo . . . we had one last week that was basically a potato soup, the pickles were shredded (or diced? can't remember now) - that would be good, don't know if that's what Nowski's looking for, but I'm going to have to go on the hunt for that, so anything your mom has, would be great!
Dziękuje!

Thanks for the spelling...

Have you tried the packaged soup by Knorr called Zupa ogorkowa
which is Sour Pickle Soup...The package reads: Product of Poland
Just add "three glasses of cold water and boil for 5 minutes"
It's pretty darn good for instant soup, has a real pickle taste...
of course it's nothing like the real thing

arrgh - I was just going to bed and I remembered - there's another ogonek in there - it's "dziękuję"! (those diacritical marks will get you every time!)

Will look out for that the next time we're at the Polish or German stores! :^)

it's "dziękuję"!

I would never have known, I appreciate the correction however

Good night! It would be pretty funny if you dreamed of pickles... : )

here is a very similar soup and it can also be served cold so it's also great for summer:

Cauliflower Soup:

7 cups of broth (chicken or beef, veggie stock will work also)
1 lb cauliflower (cut into small flowerettes)
1.5T of instant flour
2C milk
2 egg yolks
1T of DILL

Bring broth to boil.
+ caulifliwer, simmer for 25min.
+ flour mixed with .5C of milk
bring just to boil. remove from heat.
+ egg yolks and the rest of milk
+ DILL

stir and serve



this serves 10 according to my book but once again, i'll have to say 4.

Was IT white? White Borscht was made with pickle juice. We used vinegar to make it tart.

she must be looking for cucumber pickle soup - it is very popular in Poland just as cucumber pickles are (the fermented sort - no there is no alcohol in that - it's milk kind of fermentation)

yes the best thing is to google the recipee - i have seen tons in English

Bottled przecier ogórkowy (grated brined cucumber) is available at Polish shops and delis in N. America. Just cook in meat stock, and whiten wtih sour cream and flour.

Merged: cucumber soup

My Polish grandmother made a dish she called chusspeiss or chussbeiss...I'm unsure of the spelling. It had cubed potatoes and cucumbers in it. I think it also had onion in it and a white sauce of some kind. I don't know if it was a soup, stew, or vegetable side dish. Does anyone know what it might be and/or have a recipe for it? Thank you!

You might have 2 soups in mind, try to google for "zupa ogorkowa" and for "zupa ziemniaczana"

Yes. I've always had it with pickles and potato except when it's made by a Polish guy I know who makes it with both - his own kiszony and always a couple of fresh ones when in season, also his own. I think it's very much a family recipe, and is delicious.

Now that fresh cucumbers are in season,it's wonderful to have a nice bowl of this soup.
