    Dorie's Lori's Note:

    This was originally a WW recipe, from, I am guessing, the early 70s. I am pretty sure it has been altered somewhat, but it is super-easy and very tasty. We make it often in spite of its low calorie/low fat attributes ;-). My Nana always had a pot of it on the back burner because it was a “free” food, and boy, did the house smell good! Makes lots, but freezes well, also.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut up all the veggies, put everything in a very large pot, cover with water, and cook at least 3 hours, until everything is very soft.
    2. 2
      Taste for seasoning – judge sour and sweet separately to see weather to add more citric acid or sweetener. I usually do add plenty more of each, until it is delicious.
    3. 3
      Notes:.
    4. 4
      Don’t even bother cutting the core out of the cabbage – it cooks down with everything else and will be delicious. Really.
    5. 5
      Measurements can be approximate. Feel free to adjust for what you like or have on hand. I know I always have a glass of the juice before pouring it into the pot ;-) Speaking of the juice, I don't remember it being part of the original recipe, but I always add it for tomatoey taste and body.
    6. 6
      Sometimes, my Nana added green peppers. Her recipe also mentioned to serve with “rice and veal balls”, although I don’t actually remember her doing this. What could be bad?.
    7. 7
      When I am not on a diet, I add brown sugar instead of the sweet-and-low.
    8. 8
      Oops - I Totally had to Estimate how many servings. But this does mostly fill my 10 quart pot, and then cook off a little, so I will est. 18 servings - your mileage will vary;-).

      Just plugged this into the new points system and it is not 2 points plus. Still a good bargain in the points department though.

      1 POINT - according to the WeightWatchers points finder this is 1 point per serving. This is also according to the nutrition facts the poster has listed to the left.
