Aunt Josie’s Cabbage Soup

As the weather gets colder I find myself making more and more soup. This is one of my favorites.  It is simple to make and loaded with flavor. The recipe came to me through my Mother who got it from my Aunt Josie. While I normally make it in a soup pot it can be make in a crock pot- after the onions and sausage have been browned a little. Ready in no time it is a great solution when you want home made soup but don’t have a lot of time.
