Reviews for Sauerkraut Soup
"This soup is OK - Kinda bla for me - I probably wont make it again"
"This is a long time family favorite! I use my homemade sauerkraut and substitute my own canned tomato juice for the tomato paste and some of the chicken broth. Paired with fresh biscuits or homemade bread, it makes a wonderful meal."
"I made this back when it was published in 1994. Pasted that issue on to others and I've searched for this recipe for years. I love this soup. I made my own chicken stock and didn't drain the saurerkraut and did add fresh ground pepper. AWESOME soup. I'm so glad I found this recipe. I know what's for supper."
"This soup was just OK. It needed something. I added salt and pepper, crushed red pepper, brown sugar and carroway seeds which made it better. But if I decided to make it again, I think I would cut the amount of saurkraut in half."
"We like pepper in our soups, so I added 1-2 teaspoons of pepper. Making it again tonight!"
