    Nymphadora Tonks's Note:

    This soup was first inspired by Mrs Weasley's onion soup that she serves to Harry upon his arrival at the Burrow soon after the end of his 5th year at Hogwarts. From that I looked at through my favourite old cookbook and adding some personal flare, created the best, thick, rich onion soup I have ever had.

      This soup is thick, with a rich bouillon. I used butter to give a better taste. This soup would be perfect if it was not too sweet. So another time I won't add the sugar. Thanks Nymphadora Tonks :) Made for PAC spring 2011
