 Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup
 1 head cabbage
 2 large cans crushed tomatoes with added puree
   (or some equivalent)
 1 large onion
 5 cloves garlic
 Juice of 2 lemons or about 1/4 cup balsamic or wine vinegar
 1/2 cup brown sugar
 1-2 talbespoons of grated fresh ginger
 salt and pepper to taste
 - slice cabbage thinly to create cabbage strips
 - half onion and slice thinly to create half rings
 - crush, slice or dice garlic
 - grate ginger
 Put everything in a large soup pot and add water to cover plus a little more.
 Bring to boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 2-3 hours (longer
 the better).
 Don't be afraid to add more tomato, sugar, or vinegar if you like it more
 tomatoey, sweeter, or more sour. Taste a couple hours into the cooking for
 adjustment. The cabbage will have imparted its flavor and the tomatoes will
 have mellowed.
 You can also add rice during the last 45 - 30 minutes (also add the more
 water appropriate for the amount of rice you add. For example, I added 3/4
 cup brown rice and 1 1/2 cup water the last 40 minutes)
 Or add a can of white or gabanzo beans. (Again these won't need cooking, so
 just add at the end)
