Cabbage is plentiful in upstate New York. This is a very hearty soup that will warm up any chilled body. During winter, I like to keep it simmering on the woodstove all day.

"My family loves this recipe, including the kids. I do sauté the sausage first, to bring out the flavor. I remove the sausage and add the onion, cabbage, and garlic to the drippings, and sauté. I leave out the caraway seeds, because I do not care for them in anything I cook."

"Excellent!. I used fully cooked chicken sausage with apples and a combination of chicken broth, bouillon and water. I would definitely make this soup again."

"I made this soup tonight and it turned out fantastic! I made some small changes -- used broth instead of water and cole slaw instead of a cabbage head. I rated, reviewed and photographed my version: http://scrumptiouscyn.com/kielbasa-cabbage-soup/ Thanks for the great recipe!"

"Excellent! I used turkey kielbasa, and we had to cook it pretty long over low heat, but the end result was well worth it."

"I made it and my family loves it. I remembered I made that about 30 years ago with "smoke pork butt" and Kielbasa in slow cooker. It was so good. Try it and you will like it."
