Vegetable Soup

2 gallon tomato
1 bell pepper
12 corn
2 cups butter beans
2 cups okra
1 cup vinegar
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 tap salt

Put on water to boil over tomatoes in sink; while you peel tomatoes, have vegetables on stove cooking. Pour boiling water on tomatoes in sink and let set until cool enough to handle. Peel, slice, and cook until they fall apart. Mix tomatoes and other vegetables and bring to boil; then cook 30 minutes more and place in jars.
(Early 20th century Bishop family recipe.)
