Meals in a Jar Monday: Potato Sausage Soup

This is my family's favorite meal in a jar so far.  My kids and husband loved it.  This recipe was created by fellow consultant Amber Spackman (you can shop from Amber here).   We have made this recipe a couple of times, both on the stove top and the crock pot, both ways work great.

Meal in a Jar Potato Sausage Soup

In the Jar

4-5 TBSP. Chicken Bullion
1 TBPS parsley
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 C. F.D Sausage
1 C. Dehydrated potato chunks
1/3 C. F. D. celery
1/4 C. F.D. onions
1/3 C. Dehydrated carrot dices
1/3 C. F.D. peas
Added when making:
1/2 cube butter
3 Quartz water
 1/2 cup flour
1 cup Thrive Instant Milk (pre mixed)

Boil contents of the jar in 3 quarts water for 10 to 15 minutes, until the carrots and potatoes are soft.   

Meanwhile create a roux by melting the butter over low heat, gently whisk in the flour.  Add 1 cup Thrive Instant Milk (reconstituted before adding).  Stir over low heat until thick and bubbly.  Add to the soup and mix well.  Heat 1-2 minutes more and serve.
