I like Barszcz czerwony and Flaki, but we make Flaki with cicken meat, instead of rumen. Cucumber soup is also sometimes yummy and the soup on Christmas, with lentils.

I am trying to make a Polish soup called zurek that I have enjoyed many times during visits to Gdansk and I am reaching out to any cooks that can help. I have a recipe that includes a picture and it looks exactly like I remember. The recipe is from a known chef in Warsaw. The recipe calls for a sour to be made with rye flour and hot water, then to allow it to ferment for 4-5 days. I did this and put the mix into a dutch oven and set it ontop of the refridgerator. Unfortunately the recipe doesn't explain the process in detail and Im not sure what to do with the moldy mess that I ended up with on day 5. I clearly did something wrong.....HELP. I love this stuff! I read another recipe that said to make a paste with the rye flour and allow it to settle to the bottom of a glass or stoneware jar, then pour hot water over that paste and without mixing, allow it to ferment for 4-5 days. Then the recipe mentions straining the sour mix off the top and don't include the rye four as part of the sour in the soup. Is this where I went wrong? Email me at mactrich@yahoo if you have any suggestions for me. Thanks

Foss or fause or kwas.My mother made this soup with sour cream and vinegar. She would boil pork shoulder,ribs patio steaks or chops with one onion, celery, peprcorns, and bay leaves,She would add white vinegar to taste after making the stock.She would add sour cream to the soup after cooling some and serve with potatoe dumplings

Oops, it is a disgrace to tradition. True flaki must be made with pork, beef or calf rumen or other intestines.

Good; culinary traditions continuously evolve. I doubt many people here would enjoy a typical Polish diet from 1650.

Tofu can also be used as a substitute...

Much earlier - king Jagiełło loved true tripe soup.
No need to spoil a perfect dish with cheap substitutes like chicken meat - yes, we have a war with the invisible enemy but it doesn`t excuse us. Tripes with chicken is no longer tripe but chicken giblet soup. :):)

Tofu can also be used as a substitute...

Please stop or I will puke my breakfast out. :):)

Yes, indeed. flaki looks like chopped mushrooms, especially boczniaki:

I was raised on Zupa Grzybowa with diced venison steak added to it.
I found a place here in Michigan to buy Polish mushrooms year around and very reasonable.

Be careful if they don`t take you for a ride. Sometimes they claim thye are Polish mushrooms while in fact they are Chinese or Russian (Czernobyl!!!) hahaha
