    Sharon123's Note:

    Modified from the NY Times by, who adapted it from The National. I put my spin on it by using vegetable broth, and adjusting some of the measurements. If you have smoked salt, by all means sprinkle some over the soup when you serve it.

      If you love cabbage, you'll love this soup. Loved the sweet and sour flavor and the addition of the golden raisins. If you want a more substantial meal, you could add some steamed brown rice to your bowl and ladle the soup over it -- don't forget the dollop of sour cream on top. : ). Either way, this soup is really delicious. Made for PRMR, January, 2014.
