The finished product came out darker than I was expecting but when mixed with milk it looked just like the store bought stuff. How cool is that? We may do a little tweaking of the recipe for next time but that goes with the canning territory. That's the beauty, you don't like something, well then fix what you don't like.
Now we wait for the mushrooms to go on sale again and we will have a soup making day. Hopefully, we will be able to put up what we will use for a year and save me the backache of yarding the cans around the store each time I go.
