Here’s another great one sent by Gil & Joe of the UK! This is a Polish variety. What’s Ogorkowa mean? Simple – cucumber soup. I looked around online and found lots of recipes, some using dill pickles and mentioning that pregnant Polish women favored this soup. Well, let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).
As the noodles came from a long way via postal mail, they got a little beaten up – here’s one of the chunks.
The dry seasoning packet – a pretty big one!
Has a strong dill pickle scent and kind of a taste much like sour cream and onion chips.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, finely chopped ham and black pepper. The noodles are pretty good – nothing really weird, just a nice consistency and chew. The broth is slightly on the bland side, but has a really interesting fill flavor to it I enjoyed. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 5900300545698.
