Intro: Slovak Smoked Sausage and Sauerkraut Soup (kapusta Polievka)

Years and years ago when I spent my first christmas with my girlfriends parents, (her father is hungarian, her mother is slovak, she herself was born in bratislava slovakia,) her dad made sauerkraut soup.

I was dubious at first, but I'm ALWAYS game to try new ethnic food, and after a healthy dollop of sour cream, I dove in and fell in love with slovak/eastern european food with the first bite.

What follows is a quick guide on how to make slovak sour kraut soup. if you have never had it, you are in for a treat.

    Where is the recipe? How much stock and when do you add sauerkraut. The pictures don't tell me anything. Please...I want to make this on Sunday.

    Kate711 - for some reason, when I wrote this, the instructions appeared on the pictures themselves. Click the little 'i' on the pictures and it will show my comments. You'll need about 2 quarts chicken stock!

    I'm 100% polish, but raised mostly in the USA. I'v never made this soup before and would love to try my hand at it. What are the herbs in the picture, I can't make them out. Is one of them thyme? What is the other?

    The knife shown is a Friedrick Dick. (F. dick or Friedr. Dick) It's a great medium weight all purpose chef's knife that will run you about $150.oo

    My husband is part Slovak and introduced me to this soup - we've loved it for years! Luckily, we have a local Polish deli and can buy something very similar, the only noticeable difference is a little dill. I believe they call it Kapusniak (spelling is probably wrong) but they smile politely and accept the English translation of 'cabbage soup'. I can't wait to surprise my husband with a homemade batch - thanks!

    It's cooking on the stove as I am writing this, thank you for this instructable!
    Luckily I have a great Polish butcher around the corner so I had no trouble finding the sausage and the smoked ribs. \o/
