King's Arms Tavern Peanut Soup

 1 medium onion, chopped

2 ribs celery, chopped

1/4 cup butter

3 Tablespoons flour

2 quarts chicken broth

2 cup smooth peanut butter

1-3/4 cup light cream

Chopped peanuts, for garnish


Saute onion and celery in butter until soft, but not brown. Stir in flour until well blended. Add broth and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and puree either in a blender, using an immersion blender, or food processor. Add peanut butter and cream, stirring both in thoroughly. Heat through and serve. Garnish with chopped peanuts (and I used bacon as well.)
