- Place tomatoes, celery, onion, green pepper in a large stainless steel stock pot and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, stirring as needed, until everything begins to become soft.
- Press through a food mill or sieve ( I use my juicer ) add basil and salt and keep out 1/2 cup of the juice to mix with the clearjel. Bring soup back to a boil and stir the clearjel into the cooled tomato juice. Once it is mixed well pour into the soup mixture and bring to a boil and continue to stir until it become thicker.
