While most of the recipes shared can be found, sometimes there are some that didn't make it in the cookbook "Recipes and Remembrances" that are too good not to share! You can never have too many good tomatoe recipes, especially when you find tomotoes flowing from every corner of the garden! This recipe is great to have on hand for a quick and healthy lunch of Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese.
Delicious Tomato Soup
Cook together until tender, then put through sieve:
14 quarts chopped ripe tomatoes
7 medium onions
1 bunch celery include leaves
14 sprigs parsley (can use dried)

*3 tablespoons salt
*8 tablespoons sugar
*2 teasp. pepper or *1 teasp. red pepper.
