And She Lived…

{October 28, 2008}   Homemade Tomato Soup

This is a great recipe that was actually my grandmother’s. She would make this soup in bulk and then jar it up so she could pull it out for a quick and easy meal when she had company. I am going to post the recipe just the way I got it from her, so this is in large quantity for making bulk and jarring. You can cut the recipe, which I usually do about a 3rd, and have a good amount for dinner.

14 quarts ripe tomatoes
14 tablespoons flour
7 medium-sized onions
14 tablespoons butter
1 stalk celery
3 tablespoons salt
14 sprigs parsley
8 tablespoons sugar
3 bay leaves
2 teaspoons pepper
WASH; cut up tomatoes. Chop onions, celery, parsley, bay leaves. Add to tomatoes; cook until celery is tender. Put through sieve. Rub flour and butter into smooth paste thinned with tomato juice. Add to boiling soup; stir to prevent scorching. Add salt, sugar and pepper. For smoother consistency put through sieve again. Fill clean jars to within one inch of top of jar. Put on cap, screwing the band firmly tight. Process in water bath 15 minutes.

Trust me, this is WAY better than the stuff you get in a can!

Hope you are enjoying Attack of the Killer Tomato week.
