Evelyn this is definitely a keeper in my books. I didn't have any caraway seed but it still tasted great. Very easy to make, just have everything chopped up ahead of time. I made it this morning and have already had 2 bowls. Thanks for a great soup recipe.

I've been meaning to make this soup for a while and finally got around to it. I followed the recipe exactly but found it to be too bland when it was completed so I added 1/4 of white vinegar, 1/4 more of fresh dill and I fried up 3 more chopped pieces of bacon. Then the soup tasted delicious. It needed something more than the original recipe. Evelyn's recipes are wonderful.

Wonderful!!!!! Fast, easy,and good for you too! I am going to use this in my cooking class. "learning in retirement" at the university here in hattiesburg. I also used some fresh ground nutmeg and toasted and ground up the caraway seeds, since I can't have any seeds. I used my "boat motor" to blend it ,but left it a little chunky. I served it sprinkled with fresh grated romano and a slice of old world rhye bread! :-) thanks for sharing. Ingrid
