"A flavorful sweet-and-sour cabbage soup. Years ago a local restaurant served a cabbage apple soup that I've been trying to recreate. This is my best attempt, and possibly even better! For a vegetarian version, simply omit the bacon."

  1. Place bacon pieces in a large pot and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Drain fat from the pot and add olive oil, onion, garlic, and caraway seeds. Cook and stir until onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in chopped apple, vegetable broth, apple cider, cabbage, cider vinegar, and sugar. Bring soup to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer, partially covered, until cabbage is tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Cut bread into large chunks and place them in the bottom of six soup bowls. Ladle the soup over the bread and serve.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you omit the bacon, add salt to taste.
  • I used a peppered bacon that the local co-op had for extra flavor and a small baguette for the bread. You can also use a Vidalia(R) or other sweet onion in place of the yellow onion.



There were some unexpected ingredients for this soup so I just had to try it. Glad I did! This will be a go to!

Very good. Loved the addition of the apple, and especially the fragrant caraway seeds. I mushed up the caraway seeds with a mortar and pestle, then added the caraway to the soup mixture. Fabulou...

It was good! I liked it. Good mourning soup for the ride to work to get the body moving. Better then coffee

This was surprisingly good, my whole family enjoyed it. A real comfort food.
