"For those who love dill pickles, this is a must-make! All pickle juice is not created equal. Some is saltier than others. Taste your soup after adding the pickle juice and final seasonings. It's possible you will not need any salt or would prefer more or less."

Step 1

In a large pot, combine broth, , garlic powder, potatoes, carrots and butter. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender. Add pickles and continue to boil.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sour cream and water, making a paste. Vigorously whisk sour cream mixture (2 Tablespoons at a time) into soup. (This will also break up some of your potatoes which is okay. You might see some initial little balls of flour form, but between the whisking and boiling all will disappear. Don't panic.)

Step 3

Add pickle juice, Old Bay, salt, pepper and cayenne. Cook 5 more minutes and remove from heat. Serve immediately.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I liked this a lot. I have to make it again, though, because I wasn't able to get ahold of any Old Bay. I had to use Lawry's. Plus I used half pickle juice and half banana pepper juice. I believe I will like it even better the next time I make it. I didn't add any salt and it was too salty because I had cheap banana pepper juice. This is a keeper for sure.
