Mushroom Soup

1 lb cleaned and sliced fresh mushrooms 2 Tbs flour
3 Tbs butter 4 cups chicken stock
¼ cup dry sherry  

Place mushrooms in soup pot without water or oil. Cover and cook over very low heat for about 15 minutes until only a small amount of mushroom liquid remains. Add butter, and when melted, sprinkle with flour. Cook, stirring for a few minutes longer. Slowly add chicken stock, stirring constantly. Simmer for 10 minutes. With slotted spoon, remove mushrooms and transfer to a blender or food processor. Add sherry, blending until smooth. If needed, add ¼ cup of soup liquid to achieve a smooth puree. Stir pureed mushrooms into the soup, reheat and serve. Season to taste.
