This week I have been busy baking cakes, therefore I hardly had time to cook something new or to experiment. Now, I am finally back to normal so here is a warm cabbage soup with cider. The cabbage was waiting for weeks to be used, meanwhile the outer leaves were already getting yellow, so I had no more time to waste. Well, this soup won't win anything with its colour, but it has a beautiful piquant taste.
300 g white cabbage
1 medium potato
1 tablespoon butter
300 ml cider
300 ml chicken or vegetable stock
50 ml cream
Melt butter and sautee onion, add sliced cabbage and potato and sautee for a few more minutes. Add salt, pepper and ground caraway, then pour cider and stock on it and cook for 15-20 minutes. Puree, add cream and some more cider just before serving. Serve it with caramelised apples and fried bacon or raw ham.
