Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


6 servings (2 quarts)

A friend brought samples of this recipe to a soup-tasting class sponsored by our extension homemakers club. It was a great hit with my family. The mix of sausage, apples and vegetables makes a different and flavorful combination.


  • 3 cups coleslaw mix
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 carton (32 ounces) chicken broth
  • 3/4 to 1 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 medium unpeeled Golden Delicious apples, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large saucepan, saute the coleslaw mix, carrots, onion, celery and caraway seeds in butter for 5-8 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
