5. Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup
This is a comfort food recipe from my childhood and something my pops and I like to cook up when he comes to Atlanta to visit. Serves 8-10
Put the cabbage and onions into the pot with enough water to just cover. Bring that to a boil.
Add the tomatoes, and bring it back to a boil. Add the lemon juice and taste the broth. You’re going for a sweet and sour flavor, so add your brown sugar, one tablespoon at a time, until you get a nice balance of sweet and sour. 1/4 cup usually works well, but it’s really a matter of personal taste. If you accidentally go too sweet, just compensate with more lemon. It’s better to go a little bit sour, because the raisins will make this sweeter when you add them in.
Once your broth is seasoned, add the raisins, and simmer for about an hour and a half, covered, then add the potatoes.
Simmer for another half hour, and taste the soup again. Add the pepper, and let it cook on low for another half hour before serving.
