Warwick School District Tomato Soup
This is the recipe from my childhood. Our school cafeterias made this soup from scratch. They served it with a choice of sub or salisbury steak sandwich.
12 c. Tomatoes peeled and pureed (I just used two 28 oz can of tomatoes and one weird 35 oz can and pureed them in blender)
3/4 c sugar
1.5 qt water
1T onion flake
3/4 tsp celery salt
2 oz (1/4 cup) Beef base (calls for Major Beef Style Soup Base. I have been using Better than Bouillon)
14 T Butter
1/2 cup flour
Bring first 6 ingredients to a boil.
In a small saucepan, Melt butter. Add flour and stir to make a roux (It will be more of a slurry). While soup is boiling add the roux to thicken.
Makes 4-5 quarts
