When ever I make Ukranian or Russian Cabbage Soup and have no lemon or citric acid, I take a Vitamin C tablet and throw it in. That takes care of the citric acid. Have been using this for years and it really works well.
I was looking for a sweet & sour cabbage soup so I "bumped" this one a little bit: 1/3 c. apple cider vinegar and 1/3 cup sugar in place of the citric acid and the sugar in the recipe gave the soup just the flavor I was looking for. To keep the cabbage a little crisper don't add it until the last 1/2 hour of the cooking time. This soup is definitely better the 2nd day!
Great soup. We added more vegetables. The soup needed a lot more flavoring. We added a lot (way too much) of salt. Next time we make this we are going to use chicken stock or vegetable stock. Thanks for the recipe.
I receive a head of cabbage each month through Angel foods and soup is about the only thing my family will eat so soup it is! This was very good although I did add a large can of tomato juice and also used homemade chicken broth sitting in the freezer instead of water.
Turned out to have a nice deep flavor. At first it seemed like there wouldn't be enough water for the vegetable ratio but the vegetables shrunk a bit. I didn't know what spices to throw in to really get it flavorful. I added a little garlic and pepper. Next time I might throw in a few pasta noodles. Was very hearty and traditional.
warning the house smells pretty terrible while this is cooking! The soup itself turned out okay but I was the only one in my family willing to eat it. I guess no matter how it is cooked cabbage really isn't our thing (despite the fact that we got about 20 of them last year from our CSA!). I'm glad I tried this but I won't be making it again.
