Wild Rice Soup

I'm posting this recipe for Amy. And whoever else wants it. It's my mom's recipe, and it's DELICIOUS.

6 T butter
1/2 flour
1 T chopped onion
3 c chicken broth
2 c cooked wild rice
1/2 c diced ham
1/2 c finely chopped carrots
3 T slivered almonds (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1 c half and half

Sautee onion in butter. Stir in flour, let it cook until smooth. Add broth. Cook together, stirring. Boil one minute. (I add my carrots at this point and let them boil to soften them a bit.) Add ham, wild rice, almonds, and salt. Stir in half and half. Heat only to serving temperature; do not boil once you've added the half and half or it will separate.

this is such a simple recipe, mine is nearly identical.

i usually saute my carrots, too. sometimes i use chicken instead of ham, but it is ALWAYS a hit!

Jen - I think it might be the Byerly's recipe...?

Oh, thank you so much! I had close to the same recipe (if not the same) and I lost it. Never found one to replace it that was quite as good. I love it.
