I made this soup last week and it really came out well. (note that I cut back quite a bit on the heavy/rich elements and it was still rich to the tongue tasting)
Thanks to Joe, aka GardenGuru, over at Gardenweb who emailed many of us his huge .doc of various soups. With below freezing temperatures last night, it's soup time for sure. If I have energy, I may make some kind of soup today; otherwise, I'll just thaw a container of sauerkraut soup for my dinner. I suspect it will be the poof-ed way today (pulled out of freezer). But isn't that what freezers are for??
