This amount = 1 can condense cream-of soup.
For Cream-of Chicken Soup: use 1 ¼ cups chicken broth instead of water.
For Cream-of Mushroom Soup: use water; add ¼ cup diced, cooked mushrooms to the soup after it thickens.
For Cream-of Celery Soup: use water, add ¼ cup diced, cooked celery to the soup after it thickens or add a dash of celery seed to the mixture while it’s cooking.
This, for me, is easier because I can control the salt content. Also, it saves well in a glass mason jar. Furthermore, it is freezable. This makes all things a bit better in my life.
