Homemade Tomato Soup

My schedule gotten hectic, after I made this last September. We empty my in laws' house to be sold and many things happened. I finally got a chance to visit my google account  and here I am. Updating a few blogs of mine.

This is my very first time making tomato soup, tomatoes came from my garden. I had to watch them carefully because my yard/garden was the deer route in my area. And not thinking, I put a knee high fence around it. Hah! I say...hahaha... Those deer are taller than me and they can easily step over the fence. Yap, they ate most of my tomatoes, and anything in it.

The recipe says' that I should have six or seven pints. Can you see how much I end up from that recipe...hahaha... Did I mention my very first time making this? Yap, exactly. :D

2014 Sweet Relish Batch

All the vegetables I am using came from my garden. Yes, I'm supposed to grind the vegetables but I opt to chopped them all up instead.

The only thing missing are the onions. I was cooling it down inside the fridge before chopping them.

Soaking in hot water with salt.

Boiling for 30 minutes.

Preserve in a hot jars. I made six pints this year. Tomato soups next, as soon as all of my tomatoes ripened. Goodbye HFCS, most sweet relish have them except for Wos-Wit Pennsylvania Dutch Foods brand. Hopefully they can keep it HFCS free until they can. Thumbs up to you for making products that are healthy for human consumption.
