Home-style Cream of Celery Soup

Deb Lund

I love celery and use it in many things, but sometimes my s=celery begins to look a little soft. This is a perfect way to use that not quite crisp celery for an inexpensive tasty soup. It is made with skim milk to keep the fat content down but you could add whole milk or half and half if you want a creamier soup.
