This is very easy and delicious soup. Each family in Czech Republic makes it a little bit different this is the way we do it.

This is delicious! It is easy and wonderful. I kept to the directions. My dh and I loved it. reminded me of a soup a friend and I had at Clarence's Chowder House in Portsmouth NH, a hundred years ago. We used to dream of that soup and tried to copy it but never got it right. Now I don't have to dream of it, I can eat it!!!

This is very close to the sauerkraut soup my grandmother used to make. It really brought back fond memories of going to her house after church and eating this great soup. I'm so glad I found this recipe. Thanks so much, Dita 22.

A very nice simple recipe with a lot of taste! I only substituted one thing in that I used lean turkey sausage instead of polish sausage. This soup recipe will definitely find a permanent home in my files. Thank you Dita!
