Homemade Cream Soups

I am not a huge fan of preservatives and ingredients that I have trouble pronouncing, so this has become one of my favorite things to make. Its quick, its easy and of course, it helps me use food storage ingredients so I LOVE IT!!! This is just a basic recipe, but you can google Homemade cream of______ whatever type you might be looking for and it will help you decide if there are any extras you'd like to add to your own.  I know a lot of you are saying, what a hassle to have to make something you can just pour out of a can, but let me tell you how easy it is.  I usually just make 6x this recipe then freeze it in individual bags so its ready when I need it.

Great recipes! I had to make cream of mushroom soup in a pinch for thanksgiving and I only have my thrive ingredients and it worked GREAT! I used the mushrooms, onions, and I used chicken broth since it was going in my green bean casserole.
