This recipe may make about 2 quarts. I double or triple it, depending on my carrot supply from my garden. It must be pressure canned. Do not process/ can with cream added. Add cream only when ready to serve. This recipe DOES NOT follow USDA canning rules. If this bothers you, do not continue reading. The concern is that the heat may not penetrate into the middle of the quart jars because the soup is thick. However, I (and many others) have canned it for years with no problem.
