Hi, I had and loaned out the best little preserving recipe book on preserving, it was an old 70's ish book, It had a fantastic bottled tomato soup recipe and from memory one for bottled spaghetti. I would love it if someone has the book and could pass the details on or any other onee that could be similar. thanks in advance.

oh forgot, the book was one of a series at the time that were all themed, there were mince recipes, casseroles etc, all themed. very common. It had rough almost like recycled unbleached pages, no pictures from memory and very simple type. . hope that helps. Darn people who don't return borrowed treasures lol

Can't help with the bottled soup recipe sorry but here is a good crockpot recipe i make every winter using up surplus tomatoes to freeze.
Ripe Tomatoes, 1 onion, 2-3 cloves garlic, 1 tsp salt, 1 tablespoon sugar, 2 tablespoons tomato paste, 2-3 beef or veg stock cubes crumbled, 1 tablespoon wine vinegar, few fresh herbs. Good pinch curry powder, 3-4 bay leafs. Slice bread pulled into pieces
Turn crock/p on high to heat, Skin tomatoes by pouring hot water over them leave for while drain and peel skins off. Fill up crockpot with tomatoes add chopped onion, crushed garlic, saltbread sugar, Tomato paste, stock, vinegar, curry powder. Lid on and cook on high 1/2 way through cooking squish down with potato masher. When done remove bay leaves, add your freshly chopped herbs and puree with blender till creamy, cool and freeze. Soup is nice and thick and tasty.
If you want thin soup re heat and add dash cream or sour cream serve sprinkled with parsley.

yum, added that one to the pile, thanks loads. Ive even tried to google the spagheti recipie but can only find spaghetti sauce. I know the amounts were vital or it would either be runny or the pasta would soak the sauce up. . fingers crossed someone might have it in their collection.

14lb tomatoes, 7 med onions, 1. 1/2 cups sugar, 2 tblsp plain salt,
1/2lb butter, 3 teasp black ground pepper, 1 teaspn curry oowder, 1 teaspn mustard seed.
bring all to boil and boil 2 hours. put thru mouli and put in hot jars, seal, or let cool, then put into plastic containers in freezer.
I use the same for spagetti, and just boil up noddles and add.
sometimes, just add macaroni or any pasta.

thanks so much... hoping to get some tomatoes from town this week, not many around this year to buy for bottling. We usually have loads in the garden but moved and started our tomatoes late and in a much smaller garden than usual. .
