Recipe by Dienia B.
My second soup for canning recipe. This one is from Libbie, via Mrs Carl Sporleder. It is a very old recipe and I am writing the recipe as written. I am guessing at the amount this makes. Always follow the Ball canning book directions. This is an interesting recipe to read just by itself for how they did things back then.
- 8 quarts tomatoes, peeled, chopped
- 6 onions, small, chopped
- 1 bell pepper
- 1 bunch celery, not to big, chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup salt
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 cup flour
