"Finely chopped dill pickles are combined with lots of seasonings in chicken broth to make a very unique soup. This does sound like an odd recipe, but it really is good!"

  1. Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Whisk in flour, and cook until the flour just begins to turn from white to a pale beige, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in chicken broth until thickened and smooth. Increase heat to medium high, add dill pickles, pickle juice, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, onion salt, dill weed, curry powder, white pepper, and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes, whisking frequently. Remove from heat and whisk in milk. Remove bay leaves before serving.

It was a bit salty. We didnt have onion salt so I used regular salt, but I reduced the salt to 3 tsp instead of the 4 it calls for. Still, I think it was a bit too salty.

This soup was delicious. My only change was to add a small onion to the butter in the beginning, because I don't like onion salt. Surprisingly the pickles, juice, milk and curry powder worked. U...

I was surprised by this soup. I expected it to taste a lot like pickles, but the other seasonings really melded well. I might try to decrease the salt next time, though.

Yes, I did submit this, but I thought I'd review it as well. It's one of my favorites! It doesn't have a strong pickle flavor, but rather all the spices combine to give it a very unique taste....

I made this for company but wouldn't tell anyone the name of this soup until they tasted it. Everyone LOVED this soup, even my mom who doesn't like dill pickles. It was a big hit & I will be m...

Yummy!! I love pickles so its not surprising that I like this soup :D I added some celery carrots and potatoes like some other people had said. Will definitely make this again.

This is a real sleeper. Do not let the name fool you. Simple and easy to make. Spicy not for the faint of heart.If the name had a fancy name it would be a money maker in top restaurants.

This was just ok for me. I love love love dill and dill pickles so I was really looking forward to this. Something just didn't quite work for me; I think it was the texture. I liked the taste...

Love this soup. Preferably, a few boiled potatoes (cubed) gives some substance and makes tastier. An unexpected and unique flavor combination. This is a true gourmet recipe.
