    I actually made a sort of stroganoffy thing with the soup mix. Worked out quite well…cooking the soup mix, adding cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. Can’t remember if I put it over something; I think we just ate as it. Not bad. 🙂

    Hey, maybe I’ll try that tonight. I have a bunch of the soup mix. (And fat free sour cream and fat free cream of mushroom soup…)

    Do you know the shelf life of Family Canning Soup Mix?

    Rebecca, I pulled down a can from my pantry. It says, “Best if used within five years.” That said, the can was processed in 2004 and it tastes the same as it did before. It’s just dried beans, pasta, and such, so not much going on with it. 🙂
