Dill Pickle Potato Chip Soup

If you have never heard of dill pickle potato chip soup then you haven’t lived! Definitely give it a go before you knock it.

America has a strange obsession with the pickle and it turn-up in all sorts of recipes where you wouldn’t expect it, but generally, they are all surprisingly nice.

Similarly chips are starting to be used more as an ingredient rather than just a snack appearing in crumb coatings and finger foods in place of bread or crackers.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter

1 medium onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, finely diced

2 pounds potatoes, diced

2 medium carrots, diced

1/4 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon celery salt

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/8 teaspoon dry mustard

180g (6.3 oz) bag dill pickle chips, crushed

1/4 cup dill pickles

1/2 cup dill pickle juice

1 litre chicken stock (1 quart chicken broth)

2 cups water, as needed

salt and pepper, to taste

Equipment

1 large pot

Recipe Directions

  1. In a large pot on a moderate heat melt the butter, then add the diced onion and garlic. Cook until fragrant.

  2. Add the diced potatoes and carrots, then cook until tender.

  3. While still on the moderate heat stir in the flour. It will coat in the vegetables and combine with the butter to create a roux.

  4. Add the celery salt, paprika, pepper, cayenne pepper, and mustard powder, then stir to combine.

  5. Add the crushed dill pickle chips and dill pickles, then slowly stir in the dill pickle juice and chicken stock. It will start to thicken slightly as it comes to the boil.

  6. Gently simmer for at least 30 minutes. Check and stir every 10 minutes.

  7. Taste then add water, salt and pepper to achieve your preferred thickness and flavor. It can be thick like a chowder or runny like a traditional soup. Garnish with an extra chip or pickle slice.

This amazing looking soup is not what it first seems with two of the key ingredients being dill pickles and chips! But it is surprisingly good and worth a try for the adventurous. #bushcooking #dillpickles #dill #pickles
