I used a quart of my homemade tomato sauce and 1 can chicken broth in place of the 3 cans of broth and tomato sauce. I added some granulated garlic and pepper. We doubled the carrots. It was tasty and healthy.

I also add bay celery, some celery seeds, pepper, bay leaf, garlic, a couple cloves,caraway seeds, and use a can of crushed tomatoes instead of that 3rd can of chicken broth. Good stuff.

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!

I didn't have a bit of trouble making this! I first made it 2 weeks ago. I prefer more of a tomato presence and I did add in a can of diced tomatoes. I loved it! As a matter of fact, I plan to make it again tomorrow. Already got all the stuff!! Yum!!

i used all the ingredients on the list except i used only 3 potatoes. the recipe says to boil the broth and all the veggies for an half hr. i boiled it for 10 minutes knowing thats when the potatoes would be done. i added the sauerkraut and instantly there was no more broth. i didnt even get to the 2nd cooking stage and it was just a big blob of mush. i wont be making this again.
