Ciorba Teraneasca (Rumanian Cabbage Soup with Bacon)
Yield: 6 Servings

8 oz sliced bacon
2 onions, sliced
2 green peppers, hulled and chopped
1 cabbage, cut into slices
salt and pepper
several sprigs of dill and savory, chopped
1 1/2 quarts water
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup heavy cream (sweet or sour)
1 Tbsp vinegar

Chop up one slice of bacon, and fry it in a heavy stewpan until
the fat runs. Fry the onions in the fat until they are golden.
Add the peppers and fry them, too. Remove the stewpan from the
heat. Layer the cabbage and the rest of the bacon into the soup
pot. Season between the layers with salt, pepper, and the herbs.

Pour the water over it all and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down
and simmer the soup for 40 to 50 minutes, until the vegetables are
tender. Remove the soup from the heat.

Beat the egg yolks with the cream and the vinegar in a little bowl.
Stir in a ladleful of the hot soup. Whisk well and pour the mixture
back into the soup to thicken and enrich it.

Serve in deep bowls accompanied with fresh bread. This soup is a
meal in itself, and wants only a piece of cheese and fresh fruit
to make it complete. Serves 6.
