    Outstanding Hot and Sour soup

    Now I don't have to order from the local restaurant. I do find it easier to make a double batch as several of the items are 1/2 package. That's ok as it doesn't last too long in my house. Its quick to make and if you have local Chinese grocery store try adding some lily flowers and or wood ear mushrooms.

    One major problem with this recipe

    I adored Swanson's Hot & Sour Infused Broth when first I tasted it.....since then, it has become completely unavailable. It's nowhere. Can't get it. Not stocked. How could Swanson's let this happen? Why do you not send food writers at area newspapers/bloggers samples with recipes? I'm not even going to try Swanson's Cream Starter because I can see the writing on the wall. My Fall/Winter cold and flu season will have to do without this remarkable product that has no manufacturer's support. Boo-hoo.

    Outstanding Product!

    This is better than any Hot and Sour soup I've had in any restaurant. Hot and Sour soup is one of my favorite asian soups and this tops'm all. It was much spicier than I expected and we ate it all as our scalps sweated!! Don't change a thing in this product. Like most asian dishes you can alter the proteins and veggies to what you have on hand. Do I like it? I went back to the store and bought six more cartons.
