My husband is a funny boy. He leaves for work by 6 a.m. – before the newspaper would be delivered – so he stops for a paper on the way to work to read while on a break. He always brings the paper home, and I read it in the evening. That’s just what I was doing one night last week, when I turned the page and saw this note written on the photo featuring a local woman and her Potato Cabbage Soup:

HaHa! Way to be subtle, hon! I made the soup the very next day. You can find the original recipe in the newspaper clipping here. I made a number of changes, of course, like using bone broth rather than water, and cream instead of milk. I also sautéed the onions in bacon fat and added some hot pepper flakes. Oh, yeah! I’m sure that the newspaper recipe was good; mine was fantastic.
If you’re wondering about all that fat, you may be interested in my post on why animal fat is a health food when it comes from pastured animals.
Now, on to the recipe for Potato Cabbage Soup – you’re gonna’ love it!
