    Juice Ingredients:
    ½ bushel ripe tomatoes
    1 bunch celery-sliced kind of thin
    2 large onions- chopped
    Directions:
    Boil together until everything is well cooked. Drain and take the juice, I use a Foley food mill.
    Boil the juice and add:
    1 cup sugar
    ½ cup butter

    Mix 1 cup cornstarch with water and stir in.
    I get 8-12 quarts per batch. Season to taste. Every batch I have made has turned out well. I use the soup as soup or a base for casseroles or chili.
    Optional: Can and seal.

    The versatility of green beans to adapt to different flavors makes them an incredible side that compliments almost any meal. This is a beautiful dish that blends ease with elegance.
