It's canning season. I've been busy and have canned lots of tomato soup, stewed tomatos, and applesauce. So, I thought since many people ask for my canned homemade tomato soup recipe, I'd share it with you all here. :)
8 quarts of tomatos - leave peeling on, core stem out, cut into quarters
6 small onions - dice
1 stalk celery - dice
Cook in a kettle on stovetop together until soft - then put through colandar.
Take about 3 cups or so of the juice and add 1 cup of flour to the tomato juice, beating with a mixer, then add to the rest of the tomato juice. Doing so this way prevents it from getting clumpy.
Add to the tomato juice:
1/4 Cup canning salt
1 Cup white sugar
1 stick of butter
Bring to a boil, then add to your sterilized canning jars.
It is sooooooooo good! Everyone who's tried this soup raves about how good it tastes.
