This recipe for Polish pickle soup or zupa ogórkowa (ZOO-pah aw-goorr-KAWV-ah) is a variation from the women of Gwizdały village. This village was one of the stops on my tour of the Mazowsze region of Poland with Poland Culinary Vacations. Gwizdały literally means "whistled" and, indeed, the small town boasts a whistle museum with specimens from all over the world. Here are more Polish pickle soup recipe -- Mom's Dill Pickle Soup and Creamy Dill Pickle Soup.
