Old Fashioned Tomato Soup Recipe

Old Fashioned Tomato Soup Recipe

Mother made this soup when I was a child, and it was always one of my favorites. After 75 years, it still is! Mother's cellar was filled with home-canned vegetables, so the basic ingredient of this soup was right at hand. It never took her long to make a kettle of this wonderful soup.
