I have a good recipe that was provided by a former PA governor:
Fresh Mushroom Soup (from former PA governor – Thomas Ridge)
6 Tablespoons butter
2 cups finely minced yellow onions
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 pound fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup flour
1 cup water
1-3/4 cup chicken broth
1 cup Dry Vermouth
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a large saucepan melt butter and cook onions and sugar slowly until golden, about 30 to 45 minutes. Slice 1/3 of the mushrooms and finely chop the rest. Add all mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in flour until smooth. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour in water and stir until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 10 minutes.
Note: May be prepared in advance, refrigerated, and reheated (covered) over low heat for 10 minutes.
It came from a site where state leaders provided recipes from all over the USA. http://www.virtualcities.com/ons/0rec/governor.htm
I agree, The Great Santini was an excellent film.
The use of F8U Crusader would have made the flight sequences even more graceful and beautiful. What were they flying in that movie? Did they use F4’s made up to look like single seat aircraft?
Well soup lovers,
I am off to Cape Cod to wallow in soups of clam, cod and kale.
