    jo_mama's Note:

    Ciorba, Romanian "sour soup," is a delicious slightly-sour soup that often contains meat and an assortment of vegetables. The sourness can be from any number of things (lemons, borscht, vinegar, etc.) and is often mellowed by the addition of a dollop of sour cream when serving.

      This is a very tasty soup, but I would encourage you to hold back on the spices until you taste - I made about 1/3 of it, but used only 1/2 tsp each of caraway and red pepper flakes. The caraway I would use in full measure, but the soup was quite spicy even with just half the measure of red pepper - perhaps my sausage was extra spicy, whatever, it's easy to add more spice, very hard to get rid of too much spice. The sour cream was a nice touch.
