  3. I make this for Halloween night; it’s just my “thing”.
    Enjoying a bowl of Zupa Orgorkowa while greeting Monsters & Princesses keeps me from eating from their bowl of candy! I add chopped garlic to ward off vampires, of course. Smacznego!

  4. We enjoy this soup made with tangy homemade pickles. May I suggest that you try a little grated celery root (celeriac) with the carrot? I think you make like it.

  5. What is the “sweet cream”. Is it heavy cream or whipping cream? Just not family with the tears sweet cream. Thanks for your help.
