Żur żukowski

We are constantly inspired by the culinary tradition of the Lublin region. In the winter, we like to warm ourselves with savoury soups, and that is why we have decided to prepare our interpretation of żur żukowski (sour rye soup) hailing from Krzczonów. In 2015, the soup entered the Traditional Products List. The history of this soup goes back to the interwar period. The homemakers in Krzczonów used to prepare a golden broth, made of pork meat, bones, fresh garlic, horseradish root and a solid portion of root vegetables. At the end, they would add the sour rye liquid (zakwas) and served it with cottage cheese dried in the furnace and with pieces of boiled meat. At Water&Wine we serve it with horseradish oil, fresh, creamy cow’s milk cheese and finely grated dried and smoked pork meat of the Puławy breed.
