I love this soup! It is wonderful as an appetizer! I was planning on company for dinner & made a double batch! Can this soup be frozen and it so for how long?
Hi Carol, thanks for the comments! Unfortunately, we wouldn't recommend freezing this soup. With the addition of sour cream and buttermilk, it could separate when freezing and thawing.
easy to make and yummy to eat. made it for a ladies luncheon and they all asked for the recipe.
