When ever I make Ukranian or Russian Cabbage Soup and have no lemon or citric acid, I take a Vitamin C tablet and throw it in. That takes care of the citric acid. Have been using this for years and it really works well.


I have used this recipe before - it has been handed down in my family for many generations. I have found that you can substitute lemon juice for the citric acid with almost the same results.


I was looking for a sweet & sour cabbage soup, so I "bumped" this one a little bit: 1/3 c. apple cider vinegar and 1/3 cup sugar in place of the citric acid and the sugar in the recipe gave the soup just the flavor I was looking for. To keep the cabbage a little crisper, don't add it until the last 1/2 hour of the cooking time. This soup is definitely better the 2nd day!
