With the economy as it is, many people are planning veg gardens to help with their budget. Here is a base for tomato soup you can make in one batch, or you can make a lot of it and then can it. Make sure you use a pressure canner as the tomatoes need that method to be safe.

The amounts will be up to you to determine on how many tomatoes you have to use.

tomatoes - peeled and diced
onions - diced
celery sliced thin
optional: basil
chicken broth
salt & pepper to taste

bring the above to a boil, simmer until all veg are tender
if you want the soup base smooth, vs chunks, use a stick blender or put into blender to puree, you can control a bit of texture by how long you "buzz" it.

make a cream sauce of:
rice flour (or wheat if you can use it)
bring to a boil and simmer until thickened

add soup base to the cream sauce, blend and serve. I sometimes put a pat of butter on the top to serve.


If you can this, follow the manufacturer's directions on time for processing. You can also freeze this and thaw as you want it.

This base also makes wonderful swiss steak or used over a white fish
