1950s HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP

This recipe is one my mother got from a Hunt's Tomato Sauce can when I was a child in the 1950s.  It is as good today as it was then.  It was always a good way to warm up during those cold Indiana winters of my childhood.  It is still a favorite with my own grandchildren today.

2 Tablesp. Wesson, pure vegetable oil
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced carrot
1/4 cup diced celery
2 8-oz. cans Hunt's Tomato Sauce
1/2 teasp. whole pepper
1/8 teasp. thyme
2 sprigs parsley
3 cups beef stock or bouillon
1/4 teasp. salt
1/2 teasp. pepper

Cook onion, carrot and celery in oil 5 minutes.  Add Hunt's Tomato Sauce, seasonings, and parsley.  Cover and simmer 1 hour.  Strain and add beef stock, salt, and pepper.  Heat together.  Makes 4 servings.
