My Mennonite mother's 'famous' tomato soup - hard to beat! Perfect anytime of the year! Enjoy!
Here's what I purchased (for you to use as a baseline reference): - to yield 75 quarts of soup - 3 bushels of tomatoes, 6 lbs. butter, 5 lbs. sugar, 3 bunches celery, 5 lbs. flour. Hope that helps! (RECIPE BELOW IS FOR 8-10 QUARTS)
(I make lots, and then frequently give this as a gift for a new mother, a hostess gift (when invited to dinner), a get-well meal, etc..) Super quick - easy to make, and can easily add garlic bread and a salad and dessert for a quick meal to bless someone. ENJOY!
