Step 1: Blend, Cook & Strain the following:
- 2 Gallons of cut-up tomatoes (we used roma tomatoes from my parents' garden)
- 2-3 green peppers cut up (depends on how much you like the green pepper taste)
- 2 onions cut up
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- 1/3 cup of salt
- 1 cup of melted butter
Step 3 (thickening): Blend together 2 cups of flour with 1 pint to1 quart of COOL tomato juice. Start with a little and use enough to blend until smooth. Absolutely no lumps of flour in the mixture.
Step 4: Mix thickening with tomato mixture and cook till thick. If for some reason it is still lumpy, blend it again.
Step 5: Process for 25 minutes in boiling water in pint jars. This should make 13-15 pints.
When ready to eat, mix one pint of tomato soup with one pint of milk and Enjoy!
