I'd like to help her make soup.

Sounds good

Kind of salty but good

The Czechs do a dill soup, which I don't think contains any actual pickle parts, but it still tastes like pickles and is delicious.

That's a surprise.

Looking at how much pickle and juice you add compared to the other ingredients, I would say the pickles and juice just bring enough tartness to the dish to change the flavour if made without, but not enough to make it taste 'pickle forward'.

I would give this a shot. I like pickles.

There was a German restaurant near my parents' house that served a dill pickle soup.  It was quite good.  It was far more subtle than I had expected.  I miss that place.  But it was run by an older couple.  They retired, sold the property and now it's basically a bar and grill type place.  The new place has good food, but nothing particularly unique like what was there before.

Anyway, I may give this a shot.  Content wise, it seems very similar to what that German place served.

I finally gave in to curiosity and ordered a pint of pickle soup from the "Great Pierogi and Polish Food Drive-Up Event" that's been hosted at various locales near me since the early pandemic days, so I'm pretty confident confirming Ms Bell's guess about its ethnic origins. It's still biding its time in the freezer along with its delicious dumpling friends though, waiting for holiday leftovers season to wind down, so I can't confirm its appeal yet.

I make a very similar soup, except being from Wisconsin, I also put chopped up brats in it. It gets good reviews from everyone I've made it for.

I'm having some friends over for the Big10 Championship game this weekend, and want to make some beer cheese soup -- do you have a go to that you use?

Of course Google has plenty, but I'd prefer a recommendation from the Food tab instead.

This isn't from the pickle jar per se, but my grandmother [maiden name Oetjen] would make a vegetable beef soup with pickling spice. It gave an unusual, not horrid, flavor. The occasional snap between your teeth of mustard seed, pepper corn, or clove made it a bit unique.

I summoned some help from a Sconnie over in LP. They may be by in a bit with guidance.

Zupa Ogórkowa. It's a super common Polish food. If you make it, find some authentic polish pickles, not the traditional American style kosher dills.

Geez, I haven't made any in quite a while.  I think this is the recipe I used to use: https://www.copykatchat.com/forum/rec​i​pes-by-catagories/soups/36964-penzeys-​brat-beer-cheese-soup

Of note, this soup also has brats in it (you may be picking up a theme), but you could leave them out if you wanted (but not sure why you would)

Thank you!

I'm down with brats of all flavours. I have 5 jalapeno cheddar brats in the deep freeze from this past summer that were not used. I may pull them out, grill and cut em up and add em. No one attending will have a single objection.

Meant to quote you, my bad!

My mother made a pickle soup a few times. It was actually really pleasantly mild and drinkable.
