If you love dill pickles, you will love this soup! I’ve tried another dill pickle soup recipe, and it didn’t live up to the taste of dill pickles at all, in any kind of way. Like one recipe I found has 1/2 cup of pickles and 2 tbsp of pickle juice with 7 cups of broth. There is no way it has a strong pickle flavor.

How can you make a Dill Pickle Soup Recipe and have it not taste like dill pickles? What’s the point exactly? Name it something else and move over, because this dill pickle soup is all about that pickle taste that you have been craving. Not to mention, it is hearty, hot, and filling.

Someone asked me not long ago, if they could use sweet pickles to make this recipe. I gave them a weird look and said why would you want to ruin it lol! Haha, just kidding. I hate sweet pickles. They are so gross to me! How do you feel about them? Is that something you would try with this recipe? I hope you’ll tell me how it goes if you do!

So, I think you’ll really love this soup! You can use your favorite brand of pickles, or you can use fermented pickles. I actually pickle my own cukes in vinegar and use those in this delicious soup! There’s no shame if you’re just using some store-bought pickles too, they are tasty. However, check that ingredient label for yellow #5. Yeah, that’s not nice! We don’t need to color our pickles with toxin ingredients. That’s just silly.

Thanks for listening to my rant. Hopefully, you really loved this soup and come back to leave me a comment! Below are a few more recipes for all you pickle lovers out there!

  1. You don’t mention what you are doing with the half stick of butter!? I would assume you are sauteing some of your veggies but it does not mention that.

    1. Sorry, you’re right I did leave that out. But the veggies are boiled in the first step. I add the butter in with the sour cream and cornstarch. You don’t have to add the butter it just add some good flavor to the soup.

      Thanks for catching the mistake! I went back and fixed it.
