So yes I recommend this soup starter. It uses 6 cups of zucchini. Well this time I just used the summer squash, but would throw in some zucchini with the next load, maybe 2 cups and 4 cups. Summer squash is better liked in my house. It's got carrots, well I'll share the recipe, but it's really good. Just doesn't look really pretty! Not too bad though.

Soup Starter (one batch)
6 C zucchini and or summer squash
1/4 C oil
3 C tomato (peelings taken off)
1/2 tes salt 1/4 tes pepper 1 bay leaf (take out before canning) 1/4 tes basil 1/4 tes oregano
Finely chop everything. Saute onion in the oil, add spices, throw in carrots, and squash, then tomato. Simmer on low heat 15 min covered, then 15 min uncovered. Put in jars and can. I canned them at 11 pounds pressure for 30 min.
So simple and so wonderful.
