When you learn how easy it is to make your own homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, you’ll never go back to the can again. Its rich and earthy flavor is wonderful when eaten by the bowlful, and it breathes new, delicious life into your favorite casserole recipes.
Yield: This recipe makes 2 cups of condensed soup, enough to replace a standard can from the store. Or, add 2 cups water to this full recipe to make 2 servings of soup, 2 cups each (stir over medium heat until heated through).
Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Freezing: Let the soup cool completely, then portion it out into freezer-safe containers. Leave about an inch at the top for expansion. When you thaw it out, give it a good whisk to blend everything up again.
Canning: Unfortunately, this recipe isn’t a good candidate for home canning. But it freezes well, which is the next best thing.
