Canadian Cheese Soup

Saw this recipe and had to share. Only problem is does anyone know if there is a substitute for Angustura Bitters? I surfed to find it and only found 2 hits for sale. Both very expensive. One 4 oz. bottle cost almost $70.00 and I ain't gonna do it!!!!

CANADIAN CHEESE SOUP

4 T. butter
1 T. very finely diced yellow onion
1/2 c. very finely diced celery
1/2 c. very finely diced carrot
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. corn starch
1/8 t. paprika
1/8 t. baking soda
3 c. whole milk
3 c. chicken broth
2 lb. aged sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
2 drops of Angustura Bitters
salt and pepper to taste
fresh minced parsley for garnish

Melt the butter in a large saucepan; add onion, celery and carrot. Cook gently stirring often (about 10 minutes) until vegetables soften. In a small dish, mix flour, corn starch, paprika and baking soda together. Add to vegetables and cook stirring constantly for 1 minute. Slowly add milk and broth and whisk til smooth. Heat to a simmer; cover and cook gently stirring often (about 10 minutes) til carrots are tender. Remove from heat; add cheese SLOWLY and stir til smooth. Add Bitters, salt and pepper to taste and stir til incorporated. Serve hot with a sprinkling of parsley.
(makes 8 (1 c.) servings)

icy, angostura bitters shouldn't be that expensive. you'll find it in any half way decent bar as a mixer for drinks. $70 was probably for a case of a dozen 200ml bottles.

a single bottle should only be around $7 or $8...
look for it in liquor stores, or search online in alcohol related sites.

Here in the UK it is always available in supermarkets - but also in 'off licenses' - booze shops! Couldn't possibly have a 'pink gin' without Bitters! I think every British household has a bottle of Bitters in the storecupboard, and other additions, like L&P - which I use for most savoury beef dishes that I cook. It adds a filip to a Bolognese sauce, too.

Douse a lemon wedge with the bitters, try the best you can to eat it or just slurp up the bitters on it and it gets rid of hiccups

Most grocery stores - in the mixer/drink section - should have it.
