This recipe came from a restaurant in Helena, Montana. There are lots of old gold mines and tales of miners getting rich on Last Chance Gulch. A Glory Hole was a mine, rich in gold ore and was really special. This soup is special too. It seems to be just another cabbage soup, but the caraway seed adds a completely new dimension to it. Inexpensive and delicious, it will make you shout "Eureka!!".
