FROM THE GARDEN
You have to have a garden to do this. MamMa Wyles could work circles around me and when I used to have a garden MamMa would always give me instructions on how to make my soup mixture. I am really glad because nobody could make soup mixture better than she did. This was another thing that Herman would steal from his Mother.

Tomatoes
Peas,
Green Beans
Corn
Butterbeans
Onions
Carrots
Other fresh vegetables that you might have

Directions:
Directions:
You much have a great big dishpan to do this. We always made this soup mixture in one of those old Aluminum pans. Maybe that is what made it so good.

Over ripe tomatoes were the first vegetables that you cooked. Wash the tomatoes take the steams off and put them into a large dishpan of boiling water. Check occasionally to see if the skin would slip off. When the skins start to crack and curl up take the tomatoes off of the heat and pour the water off. Skin the tomatoes.

Put the skinned tomatoes back in the pan and mash them up really good. You may at this time add a little water if needed. You will then add the corn, the field peas, the butterbeans, green beans carrots, and chopped onions.Then add a little salt. Bring all of this to a boil and cook until the peas and butterbeans are just before being done. Take this mixture off the stove and put on the cabinet to cool. Put all of this into your freezer bags to freeze. Except for the pot that you take out of the dishpan and finish cooking for tonight's supper. Make yourself a big pone of cornbread and call everyone in to eat.

If you are putting this in jars, then you must seal. To do this you must put the jars into the canning cooker to seal really well. I always hated that thing, I could just see that tops blowing off, but my Mother and many other were professional at canning in the canner.

Personal Notes:
Things like soup mixture, bean, peas, tomatoes, and other fruits and vegetables had to put up to just survive when I was growing up. The women of the homes worked very hard to have a pantry full when winter came
