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!
For this recipe, I broke one of my Cardinal Rules and that is not to mess with someone's recipe. But I had to because I have some Polish and Slovak vegetarians for Christmas dinner. My mother used to make this sauerkraut soup. She also served white bean soup which some of us mixed with the sauerkraut soup. First of all, I doubled the recipe because of how many I have to serve. Due to the way things were, I substituted 4 cups of sliced baby bella (porchini?) mushrooms for the kielbasa and about a pint and a half of vegetable broth (the amount of water was not mentioned in the recipe so I eyeballed it as it was cooking). After it all came to a boil I simmered it for about 45 minutes. YUMMY! Thank you Dita!
