Lentil Soup

3 Cups Raw Lentils -- rinsed (1 bag)
2 Cups Chicken Broth
5 Cups Water
2 Teaspoons Salt -- * see note
2 Teaspoons Garlic -- minced -or- 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Medium Onion -- chopped
4 Celery Stalks -- chopped
4 Carrots -- chopped
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 1/2 Tablespoons Molasses -- or brown sugar
1 Tablespoon Wine Vinegar -- (or regular)
1 Link Polish Sausage (Pre-Cooked) -- cut in small pieces

* can use less, especially if broth is salty.

Start early (at least 4 hours). Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker or large kettle in the order listed. If using a slow cooker, set on high power for about three hours, and then turn down to low for the remainder of cooking time. Stir occasionally (every hour or so). If using a kettle, boil everything for about fifteen minutes, and then simmer (lightly) the rest of the time. Stir occasionally --more often than if using a slow cooker or lentils may stick to the bottom of the kettle. Cooking time required is about 4 hours total.
