Sausage and White Bean Soup with Spinach

1 lb ground sausage
4 cups chicken stock
1 15 oz can cannellini beans, strained and rinsed
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
3 handfuls washed spinach
3 tablespoons salted butter
1/2 cup cream
3 tablespoons Wondra Flour
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in your stock pot over med heat, and add onions. Let them sweat out for a few minutes, then toss in the celery. Add butter if the onions or celery begin to stick to the bottom of the pan. Saute for a few minutes more, then add the ground sausage. Cook the meat through, and use a metal spoon to break it into bite-sized bits. Add the chicken stock, and heat through to a gentle simmer. Once everything is nice and warm, turn the heat to low and bring out your new secret weapon, Wondra Flour. With a whisk in one hand, flour in the other, slowly add the flour to the soup, whisking the whole time. Continue adding flour until the soup reaches the desired thickness. Add the beans and spinach. Give the greens a few minutes to wilt and tip in a splash of cream. Add as much salt and pepper as you like, and you’re ready to go. Serves 4-5

Hi Carole, We’ve tried it with both ground breakfast sausage and mild Italian and the Italian seems to taste the best. I bet a delicious chorizo would be good, too!

What kind of sausage?

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
