This recipe made me 3 one liter jars of soup. The is a very frugal meal, About 50 cents worth of cabbage, I got the ham on sale and it worked out to about 33 cents worth, the onion 10 cents, the garlic 10 cents, about 20 cents worth of barley and the broth was homemade, most of the spices were homegrown.. salt/pepper another 10 cents.. for a total of 1.33 for the pot of soup, it made six servings of two cups per serving, so .22 cents per meal.. its does not get much better then that.. and its very healthy to boot..
