Billie's Potato-Cabbage-Ham Soup

Sherry Blizzard


I first sampled this just after Christmas this year while visiting Mom and Pop. This is a totally delicious and comforting soup! My dad has just finished radiation and chemotherapy for cancer and he ate, and ate, and ate of this soup. It was good to see him have an interest in eating again. Please pinch this...for him. It is a fantastic and satisfying soup. Too easy to make but very satisfying.
