Time to use up last year's canned/frozen goods

While we are waiting for this year's garden to start producing it is a good time to clean out the pantry and freezer. I did that some this weekend by making some tomato soup from tomatoes canned from last years garden.

I heated a little bit of olive oil in a sauce pan and added one large onion and 4 cloves of garlic and cooked until soft. I added 3 pint jars of tomato sauce and 1 pint of frozen veggie stock (could use water or chicken broth) and just a little pepper (I didn't add any salt since I add salt when canning). It tasted just a little bitter to me so I squeezed in a little honey. I used my hand blender to blend it all up and lunch was ready! It was so yummy!
