Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
On a whim, I decided to find a recipe for making my own condensed cream of mushroom soup. There are many recipes I do not make anymore, simply because I don't want to feed my family those canned foods.
Low and behold, I found one online that won us over. I found it at Simply Scratch. Of course you can use your own homemade vegetable broth, organic or homemade butter, home grown shallots, and goat's milk or organic milk. The recipe is equal to a typical can of condensed soup you'd buy at the store.
It smells so good when the shallots are cooking in the butter too. Mmmm!
Note: Use a shallow skillet vs. a small pan, and when you add the milk and broth, whisk a little in at a time, allowing it to thicken.
I am very happy with my results, and can't wait to taste it in a few family recipes. It can be frozen too. And you can bet, that I will be making homemade condensed cream of chicken and celery too.
