Polish Dill Pickle Soup

One of my favourite soups is Polish dill pickle soup. It can be served either hot or cold. I prefer to have it cold. This soup does not take too long to prepare. Here is a recipe for this tasty soup.

1 tablespoon butter
1 onion, sliced
2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 and 1/2 cups chopped dill pickles
2 cups water
4 potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sour cream
salt and black pepper

Melt the butter in a pot. Fry the onion until it is golden brown. Add the broth, pickles, water and potatoes. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat. Cook until the potatoes become tender.

Blend the flour with the sour cream. Add some hot soup to the mixture of sour cream and flour. Slowly pour it into the hot soup while stirring. Simmer until the soup is slightly thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot or if desired, cool in the refrigerator and serve cold.

This soup is especially good when eaten with rye bread. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
