Pickle Soup question.

My Polish assistant, who often gives me a jar of her mothers home made pickles asked me if I wanted her to bring in a jar of her mothers Pickle Soup.

Honestly, I never heard of it before until she mentioned it. She uses a meat stock, a jar of pickles ( which she dumps in all the juice and grates the pickles up. Adds potatoes, and at the end either some heavy cream, or sour cream.

Since I dont eat meat, Im going to use a vegetable stock, but before I sacrifice a jar of pickles, I was wondering if anyone has ever tried it ( eating or making) ?

Im not sure if Im going to like it, but the idea fascinates me.

Larry

This is new to me!

I would be tempted to hit it with the stick blender and serve it ice cold.

Maybe you could use this link to adjust the size of the first batch.

My husband's family is Polish and he had it regularly while growing up. I never had it till a few years ago when we had lunch at a Polish restaurant in Michigan while visiting family there. I was surprised but I liked it very much. I happen to love pickles, but the pickle flavor wasn't as strong as I was afraid it would be. It was good. Give it a try

The recipe linked to above calls for 4 large pickle spears and 1/2 cup pickle juice.

I have had a Russian soup very similar but with barley and chopped leftover deli meats in it. I loved it! I would add some small diced carrots or other veg to a meatless one.

I had never heard of this until I caught part of an episode of Guy's DDD. I'm not a huge pickle fan but was intrigued. I got as far as looking at several recipes ... but never did try making it.

My assistants mom makes it, and its one of those " throw together " recipes. The jar of pickles she gives me is about a quart. I asked her if thats the size she throws in the soup, and she said yes. Probably safer to go with the link up above or find another. Im guessing if her mom is anything like me, ID probably eat a pickle or two while preparing the recipe ( and probably drink some of the pickle juice too )

The soup I had is called Rassolnik. Here is a recipe that is meatless except the stock which you can change.
