Delish! As soon as I saw this in my inbox I showed it to my hubby. It being the first day of October this was spot on. I too use home canned tomatoes and it makes a big difference. I added diced onions and carrots too. Will be making this again.

I've been making this for years. Got the recipe from the collector's edition of Reninisce. I use 1 qt of my home canned tomatoes and 1 qt. of water. I usually add some diced onions too. This makes a big batch. My family loves this. Given out the recipe many times.

I also have made this for years but I add potatoes and carrots and no celery o garlic. It's most requested for church pot lucks? I adapted It from soup I had at Shoneys many years ago.

I don't like cooked cabbage, so I didn't think I was going to like this soup! My Mom loves cabbage soup, I was making it for her. Was I ever surprised. This soup is great and will make it oftern.

Great classic soup! Perfect soup to serve family on a snowy day but makes plenty for potlucks too. Add any extra veggies you like. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that include lots of fresh or frozen veggies! We love to pair this soup with a great sweet cornbread muffin recipe on ToH. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/sweet-corn-bread-muffins

This is a great soup for variations. I have made this for years without the celery, which I will try soon. The only spice I've used is a lot of chili powder seasoning. I appreciate the speed of preparation. I can start and finish within half an hour. It is also healthy, low budget so delicious!

Perfect soup recipe: easy, hearty, tasty and very healthy!! I used a bag of shredded cabbage to simplify the prep. In the time it takes to brown the hamburger you can get the rest of the ingredients ready to add to the soup. Next time I make this I think I will add a chopped onion to the hamburger as it is being browned and possibly a little salt or Worcestershire sauce.
