How to make it
- In a large skillet sautee onions and celery in butter. When almost translucent, sprinkle on flour. Once it starts to stick, transfer to large stock pot.
- Deglaze skillet with a generous splach of sherry and then pour this into stockpot.
- Add water, stir until blended then add powdered milk. Stir over medium heat.
- Add potatoes, salt, pepper, parsley, dill weed.
- Mix and simmer stirring often about 1/2 hour.
- Resist temptation to add bullion or stock at this point, as it may taste thin. No worries.
- Chop ends off green beans and then cut into 1-2 inch sections.
- Add green beans and sour cream to soup and fold in gently.
- Add about 1 cup sherry and stir, then simmer for about another 1/2 hour
- Let the flavors meld together. When green beans and potatoes are soft but not mushy it is ready.
