Zucchini Soup III

This is a soup with a zip to it. Zucchini are plentiful and this is a good way to use them. Tastes so good in colder weather. This soup may be frozen.

I gave this 4 stars because I did make changes, but it is a great starting point. I quadrupled the recipe in order to can it (I was able to can 14 quarts, plus served dinner to my family of 8). I had to add chicken broth to make it a "soup". I added about 3.5 quarts of chicken broth for the quantity I made. I then found the juice to be too runny, and there were still tons of veggies. I took about 3 blender fulls and pureed it, then put them back into the soup. This gave it a great balance of soup and veggies. I also added a good amount of garlic simply because we like it. I plan to use this recipe a lot this summer to help preserve the abundance of zucchini from our garden. For those interested in canning it, I pressure canned it at 11 lbs pressure for 90 minutes.

This is one of our favorite soup recipes. In the summer, I freeze it to use in winter. Everyone loves it, even the kids. I use hot Italian sausage and dice the zucchini. If you double the recipe, a one gallon can of diced tomatoes equals 8 16 oz. cans, which drastically reduces the cost and prep.

I thought this was a pretty good recipe. I sliced the zucchini a little too thick, so if I make it again, I'll make thinner slices. It was nice to have sausage in this soup, and this whole recipe lasted me for 4 days.
