Cooking with condensed soup is such a pleasant, quick way to make your family’s food taste better. It gives dishes the added zest and color of tomatoes, the wonderful subtle taste of mushrooms, the delicate flavor of celery, the well-liked goodness of chicken. For condensed soups are double-rich, double-thick, just as they come from the can.

From Cooking with Condensed Soups, approx. 1950.

    I love cooking with condensed soup, as a sauce, but this recipe just sound retched to me. Couldn’t I just have the Cranberry layer?

    Wow. I don’t want to be invited to this party. I just can’t do the soup/jello/mayo thing. Nice photo, though.
