Sauerkraut Soup

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Sackville

This is a recipe passed on to me by a friend. I love it on cold evenings, especially for the smokey flavour the sausages give the soup.

No stars, as I didn't really follow the recipe. I used tomato soup instead of paste. I used farmer sausage, a little cabbage too. I added more water and some dill. I found your recipe great for inspiration to use what I had on hand. It is very tasty with the sourkraut, and I think it could turn into borscht or a bean soup. I almost added a can of pork and beans, but thought I had enough in it this time round. Pork and beans and weiners instead of sausage? The ideas keep coming. Thanks for posting.
