Ingredients for Soup:
5 lbs of Organic Roma Tomatoes – peeled, seeded and rough chopped
1/2 fresh onion chopped or 2 Tbsp of dried onion
4-5 Fresh Basil leaves, chopped
1/2 Tbsp of minced fresh garlic
2 Tsp of salt – then salt to taste after the soup is finished
1 (15 oz) of Tomato Puree
1 (12 oz) EVAPORATED canned milk
1 small can of tomato paste
2 cups of chicken broth
I cooked this on the stove for 2 hours, for a smoother texture you could use an emulsion blender to create a smoother soup, but for us, we like it chunky. Then I served with grilled cheese sandwiches and canned the rest.
Please read your canner instruction manual for pressure and time for processing. We love it in the winter time and it makes wonderful unique gifts for family and friends.
