-- Hunter's Cabbage
(Cabbage & Kielbasa Soup)
Prepare a very large cooking pot (the largest you have :) Place the apple on the bottom, then add the mixture of potatoes and cabbage. Add enough water to just cover everything in the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
While the water comes to a boil, place the oil
into a skillet, and sautee bacon, onions and garlic for 3-5 minutes.
Stir in the vinegar, salt, flour, and
pepper. Add the bay leaf.
After the pot comes to a boil, add the entire
contents of the skillet (including all grease and scrapings) to the pot.
Cook for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring
occasionally. The apple should eventually dissolve (with help
from the cook), and the potatoes should be quite soft.
When serving, offer sour cream, Worcestershire
sauce, and/or Maggi as garnishes
. (*) Tuchowska
(usually a rough orange skin and fatty, grainy meat) is preferable to
Wiejska, which has a red skin and is more solid. Kabanos, which are
smaller versions of Tuchowska,
can also be used. Tuchowska is what is usually called "Kilebasa"
in the USA. Harder to find in the UK!
