Actually though you should be thanking my friend, Cam of Culinary Adventures with Camilla, who is hosting this Extravaganza today and got us into this pickle to begin with!
In August I shared with you my Dill Pickles that I canned and then a couple of weeks later the Hamburger Dill Chips that I made and canned. I wanted to use some of these for Cam's challenge this month and decided to share with you an old Polish Recipe for Zupa Orgokowa, Dill Pickle Soup in English. Wait! Before you turn up your nose and click out of my post stop and think about how many great foods were created and brought here by European immigrants that all sound strange until you try them and then you find out they are really delicious.
Okay, are you calmed down now? Are you all done getting yourself all in a pickle just because you are being faced with something of which you are not familiar? Good, then let's continue on and if, when you are done reading this, you still don't want to make my pickle soup then scroll down and see what the others have made for you to enjoy today. But trust me when I say, if I didn't tell you the name of the soup, you would try it and you would LOVE it.
Zupa Orgokowa (Dill Pickle Soup)
1 pint hamburger dill chips, drained or 4 large dill pickles, thinly sliced
4 potatoes, peeled and diced (about 2 cups)
5 c. chicken broth
1 c. half and half
2 T. flour
2 T. butter, room temperature
Place the pickles, potatoes and broth in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are very tender. Using an immersion blender (or food processor) puree the pickles and potatoes. If using a food processor, return pureed broth to pot. Whisk together the cream and flour. Bring the broth back to a boil and add the cream and flour stirring until incorporated and starting to thicken. Remove from heat. Using a fork, beat together the butter and egg. Add a little of the thickened broth to the egg and butter to temper it, then whisk the tempered butter and egg into the broth in the pot. Reheat if needed without bringing it to a boil. Print Recipe
