Zurek

Apr 20, 2014 — Zurek (pronounced 'zhurek") or zur is a Polish soup served traditionally at Easter. A distinctive feature of this soup is its sour taste.  While most soups are derived from a meat or vegetable broth, the base of zurek is zawkas.  Zakwas is super easy to make using rye bread and water, and you can also find it at most Eurporean market stores.  Many of my non-Polish friends say it's the best soup they have ever had. A wonderful combination of sour, salt and a very appealing creamy texture.  The Easter version always contains biala kilebasa or spicy white sausage, a hard boiled egg and freshly grated horseradish. serves 4-6 ingredientsZakwas/Kwas3/4 cup rye flour2 garlic cloves, crushed1-2 crust of rye bread2 cups warm water Zurek2 large onions, one halved and one roughly chopped1 carrot, trimmed and peeled1 parsnip, trimmed and peeled1 leek, cleaned and trimmed1/2 celery root, peeled6 cups water1 1/2 pound fresh White Polish sausage,kielbasa biala, cut into chucks3-4 strips of bacon, chopped1 Lb white potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (optional) 2 cups zakwas1/4 cup of white horseradish, grated2 garlic clove, chopped finely1 Tablespoon dried marjoram1 bay leaf5 black peppercorns3 large hard-cooked eggs, halvedpreparationTo make the zakwas or kwas: Mix together rye flour, garlic, and crust with lukewarm water. Place all the ingredients in a large storage jar about 1 qt. Think of what you would use to preserve or  for canning fruit. Place the in a warm place, like your windowsill or cupboard, for 5 days. Open the jar and remove any mold from the top and strain. The strained liquid is zakwas. Set aside. To make the soup: In a large soup pot, bring soup vegetables and water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 40 minutes uncovered.  Strain the broth and discard the vegetables. Meanwhile, in a soup pot, cook the sausage, bacon, onion and garlic over medium high heat until lightly browned. Add the strained broth, bay leaf, marjoram, peppercorns, potatoes (optional) and horseradish. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and cook for about 20 mins. Stir in zakwas and bring to a boil. Remove the bay leaf and serve with a sliced hard boiled egg and freshly grated horseradish.
