    There is a chill in the air and it brings on a yearning for SOUP! The recipe that follows
    is a different kind of soup. I hope you will give it a try. It is very hearty. When I first
    read the ingredients, I thought....APPLES and KIELBASA ...together??
    Believe me, I was surprised. Give it a try, it is equally as good the next day.

                                                        CABBAGE  KIELBASA SOUP

                 3 cups coleslaw mix [ store bought ]
                 2 medium carrots, chopped
                1/2 cup celery, chopped
                1/2 cup onion, chopped
                1/2 tsp caraway seeds
                 2 tbsp butter
                 32 ounces chicken broth
                 1 pound of kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
                 2 medium unpeeled Golden delicious apples, chopped
                1/4 tsp pepper, 1/8 tsp salt

     In a large soup pot [saucepan], saute coleslaw mix, carrots, onions, and caraway seeds
     in butter for 5-8 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and
     simmer uncovered, for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally. Makes 2 quarts.

      This is  a recipe I found years ago [ 2004]  in COUNTRY WOMAN magazine.

      That's all for today friend,  Jenny


  1. apples... that's an interesting addition to soup. This recipe sounds wonderful.

  2. mmm....soup is great on cold days...some interesting ingredients in this ...but i am willing to try smiles.....

  3. it was 38 when i woke this morning...

  4. I don't know about the caraway seeds.....

  5. Mrs. Chatterbox makes a soup very similar to this (minus the caraway seeds) and I can recommend this dish highly.
