1 bay leaf

1/2 cup finely chopped dill and some for garnish

Add stock, pickle juice,  salt , pepper cook until vegetables are cooked through and soft. Remove bay leaf and add pickles (diced) if more creaminess is desired add cream  and fresh dill cook for 5 more minutes , blend with hand blender ( you  want this soup to be fairly smooth).
