Overall recipe is pretty good. I had to substitute honey for the syrup, and I thought I might jazz it up by adding a little cooked bacon and I did a course cut on the cabbage then I put it in a crock pot. I was pleased with the outcome.
Made in slow cooker, simple and delicious. Rye bread at mealtime is a nice addition. Will be sharing this recipe with family and friends.
I make this with the lowfat Turkey Kielbasa and it is great. I use 4 tbsp of real maple syrup and the hint of sweetness is a perfect balance to the cabbage. Six cups of cabbage is about 1/2 head. I use the other half to make 49583 - scalloped cabbage.
Recipe did not specify if the Kielbasa to be used was Smoked or Fresh. I used the smoked and I enjoyed the soup. Next time I will try adding a can of diced tomatoes.
