Several Years ago a very close friend of the family, Michael K., taught me his mother's homemade cabbage soup recipe which was used for his family during the Great Depression.

Things were tough in the time period from 1929-1939(about ten years). Finances  were so tight and unemployment rampant in the 1930's, that Mike's family ate this delicious cabbage soup 7 nights a week and his father was looking for it on the 8th night. It kept them fed and happy through the depression and afterward.

Here is how I make it in a crockpot:  Step one chop a half of head of cabbage into fine small pieces; step two chop up one large onion after removing the skin; step three use two cans of chicken broth; step four one can of sauerkraut; step five one can of chopped tomatoes including juice; step six two and half cups of water.  Black pepper season to taste and you can use any leftover meat you have like "cooked" chicken or  "cooked" hamburger(Or if Vegan use no meat at all).  Put all in crockpot and leave little bit of room at the top and do not over fill crockpot. Put crockpot on low setting for 5 and half hours or on high 2 hours.  After cooking serve with tablespoon of sour cream in each serving bowl. Do not put sour cream in crockpot while it is cooking or it will curdle. Cabbage is a very economical priced vegetable. 

"Never be hungry again."  quote from Scarlett O'Hara in the movie Gone with the Wind.

Stay well and safe and enjoy your delicious soup.
