In this video, Chef John shows you how to make homemade cream of mushroom soup. This comforting, cool weather staple is so simple to make. The key is to unlock the flavors of the mushrooms through a nice long sauté in a little butter. They need to be nice and caramelized. Do this correctly, and you’ll be rewarded with deep rich flavors. See how it’s done. You can use any mushrooms you like, but it’s perfectly delicious with basic white or brown button mushrooms.
