Cream Of Chanterelle Mushroom Soup
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 pound fresh chanterelle mushrooms cleaned, trimmed, and chopped coarsely
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups prepared Aromont chicken stock
- 2 cups half and half
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground white pepper
- 2 tablespoons Madeira
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley.
Melt the 4 tablespoons of butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute, stirring often, until they soften and wilt.
Sprinkle the flour into the mixture and continue to cook, stirring constantly to coat the onions and mushrooms. Add the broth gradually, stirring constantly, and bring to a full boil. Continue to boil for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add the half and half, salt and pepper, and continue to cook over low. The mixture should remain just below a simmer. Continue cooking for about ten minutes. Add the Madeira, stir thoroughly to combine, and serve sprinkled with snipped fresh parsley.
