    Teresa Fadley's Note:

    This soup is always a big hit at family gatherings. It was my favorite at a local restaurant. I don't have their recipe but this is my own concoction that comes very close. Excellent with hot homemade rolls on a beautiful fall day.

      Wow, this is a great soup! We had a hambone from a potluck at work, and this made a great broth and great soup. I thought the cabbage would have been too much since it says a whole head, but it's so great! We used a little Louisiana hot sauce with it. Great on a cold night!

      This is one of the best soups I've had in a long time. I love cabbage but my family doesn't, so I'm always looking for cabbage recipes that they might like. This one was a hit! I only used half a head of cabbage and I think a whole head would have been too much. I didn't need to add more water as some did, but I did add some ham base because evidently my ham bone wasn't very flavorful. This is now one of my favorites. Thanks!

      Good Soup! If I don't have a ham bone, I use Sysco Ham base. This is a very strong base so add sparingly. I have used one ham steak, cut in small pieces and added the last ten minutes.
      That cuts over an hour out of cooking time. Thanks for posting!
