    We used to make Kapusta all the time but in the form of a soup. Cook cabbage in vegetable stock, add cooked onions with Kielbasa, celery, carrots and couple of large potatoes and can of stewed tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste and cook on top of stove until vegetables are soft. Serve in soup bowls with toasted bread on top covered with grated cheese. You can use any sharp cheese but cheddar is the best. Try doing it this way. Its a great winter supper. This is a polish recipe and I was told it was usually made on a Friday night. Friday was the night the fridge or cold box was cleaned out and all the vegetables that were left went into the pot. Hence Kapusta.

    Growing up we always had this. We have Polish ancestry and Kapusta has been passed down from generation to generation. I agree with you, I do NOT like caraway seeds and they are never added to anything I make. Blaugh...

    I've been making this for years and years! Just gotta love it! I'm awful and use butter like your mother-in-law did. Wonderful comfort food plus my SO is Polish and needs his cabbage-kraut fix often! Thanks.......j

    Reasonable people may differ. I think the caraway is essential.
