This is such a delicious soup I just have to share it with you. Â It’s a very traditional soup, and it’s one of my favorite soups. This soup is a staple at our house and we make it often. Â ”Ciorba” in romanian usually refers to sour soups with vegetables and some form of meat. Â They are made sour by adding either lemon juice, “bors” which is fermented wheat bran, sauerkraut juice, or sometimes even vinegar. Â Most of the time I just use lemon juice and this gives the soup a very nice sour taste. Â Also Romanians differentiate between “ciorba” and soup, soup is usually clear and has no added acid. Â I grew up with this soup, my mother used to make it quite often, and as I said it’s one of my favorite soups.
I guarantee your family will love and enjoy this.
