Great Grandmother was known for this one. When she knew we were going to visit she made a big kettle of this mouth watering soup and extra homemade bread and sweet butter. Hillandale Sweet butter is the closest taste to Grammy's. I've been making this soup for 20+yrs. Having had first timers eat this recipe Grammy's way they raved compliments and always came back for 3rd's! I've never been able to eat just one bowl. My youngest daughter (9 yrs) will not eat cabbage, but she finally ate cabbage with this soup and she loved it.
