Reviews for Sausage Cabbage Soup
"Awesome soup I was a little scared with the brown sugar and vinegar but turned out fantastic."
"This is a new family favorite in our home! It was super easy to prepare and the caraway gives it a unique flavor we all enjoy. I used a bulk sausage that I had on hand and used the drippings to saute the onions. I am sure it will taste great as written, too. My husband is still commenting on how good it was an hour later!"
"Very hearty, healthy soup that satisfies. We are dieting and this is a wonderful dinner we all enjoy."
"This soup is so tastey. I used Turkey Kielbasa and omitted the salt and it was very good."
"Yummy! Everybody loved this soup. Also very healthy. I will be making this again...and again...and again."
