Potato and Cabbage Soup


I never thought I would like green cabbage 
  (except in a wonderful bacon, cabbage and noodle bake); 
however, today I discovered cabbage recipe #2
that I like.  We had it for lunch and dinner tonight.

It is a simple Potato and Cabbage Soup
 made, of course without a recipe,
by hubby who was home today.
I was up in the attic working from home, so 
going  about my normal day, just not in the office.

He chopped potatoes, carrots, onions and cabbage
added garlic, pickling spice and salt to taste.
Put them in a soup pot and
covered them with water.
To the water add
 J.B. Jamison's chicken flavored soup base
(He usually puts in more base than the jar calls for, 
tasting as he goes until he likes the flavor.)
Then boil until tender.

I ate mine on a plate, like corned beef and cabbage
without the corned beef -
which I also don't like.
I'm no fun on St Pat's.
He had his in a bowl like soup.
We both added a pat or two of butter.

The   L.B. Jamison's soup base really makes all the difference.
You can see their product through the link. 
We like all the flavors.

Good Stuff!
