Storing

  • Fridge: Let cool then store in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
  • Freezer: Freezing creamy soups can be a bit tricky, as they tend to separate and become grainy when they’re thawed. Here are a few tips to help you successfully freeze creamy soups:
    • Use airtight containers or freezer bags. Just make sure to leave some headroom in the container, as soups can expand as they freeze.
  • Reheating: When you’re ready to eat the soup, it’s best to thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. Reheat the soup on the stove, stirring often, until it is heated through. Do not boil the soup, as this can cause it to separate.

    Believe it or not, adding a tablespoon of maple syrup to this recipe enhances an already magnificent flavor. I learned that years ago and was reluctant to do at first. But, wow! It really does something to an already magic recipe!!!!
