40 Meatless Meals: Tomato Soup
1/2 bushel of tomatoes (peeled and in chunks)
14 sticks of celery (cleaned and chunked)
7 medium onions (peeled and in chunks)
4 green peppers (cleaned and seeded and cut into chunks)
Cook these 4 ingredients until tender and then put through a blender and then a colander.
2 cups butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup salt (possibly more to taste, but add it later if you'd like)
Add 2 cups flour
Combine with juice mixture and boil about 8 minutes.
Put in jars and process in a pressure canner for 20 minutes at 10 lbs. pressure, or can in a boiling water bath for 35 minutes, or just go ahead and eat it.
Makes 18 pints.
If my math is correct, you can make 1/8 of this recipe as follows:
2 (28oz) cans tomatoes
2 stalks celery
½ bell pepper
¼ c butter
2T brown sugar
¼ c flour
