Cabbage and salt pork peasant soup

This is the best soup to eat when it is freezing cold and you feel sick. So easy to make, super cheap and very hearty and warming.

Here's how to make it.

INGREDIENTS (4-6 people):
- 3 large yukon gold potatoes
- 1 large carrot
- 1 small head of green cabbage
- 1 large bunch of kale
- 1 medium onion
- 1 large clove of garlic
- 2 tbsp of butter
- 12 cups of liquid (I used water and 1 small pack of ham flavoring from Goya, but you can absolutely use vegetable broth or chicken broth)
- 1 small pack of salt pork, diced
- salt and pepper to taste (be conservative with the salt, as the pork will bring a lot of salt too!)

- dice the onion, carrot, potatoes, cabbage and kale to bite-sized pieces

- in a large stockpot, melt the butter and saute the salt pork until golden

- then add the diced vegetables and your liquid of choice (I used only water at first and then spiked it with a pack of ham flavoring from Goya)

- bring to a boil, then lower the heat to low, cover and let it simmer for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through and the cabbage and kale are cooked to your liking

- serve hot with a slice of rustic sourdough to soak up all the flavorful juices :)
- enjoy!
