4droplemon juice
1⁄2cupall-purpose flour (plus 2 tablespoons)
10cupchicken stock

Heat butter in large heavy stock pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. When foam subsides, add mushrooms and lemon juice, tossing well to coat mushrooms with butter; reduce heat to low. Cover mushrooms loosely with foil; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 25 minutes.

Remove stockpot from heat; stir in flour until well blended. Stir in chicken stock; heat over medium heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until soup is thick, about 1 1/2 hours.

Just before serving, stir in heavy cream, salt, and pepper to taste. Heat over low heat just until heated through; do not allow to boil. Serve immediately, in warm soup bowls.
