I was looking at my soup cookbook and realized I had saved yours. My family made a very similar soup. The differences are: after the sausage is cooked, remove it from the broth and add large dice potatoes. Cook til done. The 2nd thing is we don't use mil but some of the broth or cold water to make the slurry. We then serve it in a bowl with the potatoes, sliced sausage, and sliced or chopped hard cooked eggs. This is my version: Recipe #164056

I've searched for this for years after my grandfather died, its almost like his, but for my tastes, I used 3/4 cup of vinegar.

This recipe made my Easter a much better one. It confirmed a great aunt's recollection of an old family Polish recipe. I tried it today (Easter Day 2007) and it was like being back in my wonderful Mother's kitchen on our family farm of long ago. She passed away in 2001, but probably no longer cooked after about the mid 1990's. Thank you very much for the memories and the great taste of my past.
