White borscht soup, in Polish bialy barszcz or żurek wielkanocny,  is typically eaten on Easter Sunday in Poland. The soup is soured by fermented bread and thickened with a roux (butter cooked with flour). Potatoes, along with sausage and hard cooked eggs are often served in the soup.

Many restaurants serve it nowadays for additional effect in a bowl made of bread.

  1. I’ve never heard of this before, but it sounds good. I’ve been curious about fermented foods lately and made my own kimchi. I would love a recipe for this!
