    Campbell's cream of mushroom used to be my favorite canned soup, but sometime back in the last century they changed it. I suspect they substituted flour for cream, as a thickener. It got a lot whiter, chalkier, and thicker, but not better, imo. :p Of course you always needed a magnifying glass to find the mushrooms. lol

    Now I don't have a favorite canned soup. :( {sniff}

    I agree, remember when Campbell's cream soups used to come out of the can in one thick can-shaped blob.

    These days I add a small can of mushroom stems and pieces that I've sauteed in butter with a splash of cognac to my can of soup.

    Mmm, mmm, Good!!!

    Oh I hate mushroom soup.... I remember Campbell or Heinz canned soups when I was a kid... Campbells were condensed... we usually were given Tomato flavour..couldn't have any of those now, far too sweet and acidic for me

    Yes, The Blob,. and I always thinned it down gradually to avoid lumps, but according to this video, the lumps go away when you heat it. Or do they, looking closer?



    A while back I ran across canned mushrooms at one of the dollar stores, and picked up a little can to add to something, I forget what now. I'm not a picky eater, but these were awful!!! I even drained the liquid off and rinsed them and it didn't help. Label said Made in China. What on earth do they do to them? :rolleyes:

    With all the rain we've had lately, we have lots of mushrooms.
