This sounds great. Can not wait to try it. I agree with lacrenshaw on this one. The allspice with the cabbage make this soup. You have our 5 as well!

Thank you so much, greg! Of course, you get me ^5 on this one. I know that the allspice is in there for the cabbage and that addition just makes this post better! Keep on cookin', dude.
