Is It Soup Yet?

Mrs J brought in a 5-gallon bucket full of tomatoes and then went back out for another half-bucket.  I put the juicer to work and filled a 12 quart pot.  I watched it closely while it simmered because a boil over was likely.  It finally reduced enough to start adding onions and spices and chicken base.  My calculations told me that when the juice was reduced to 3-1/2 inches it would amount to 6 quarts of soup.Ta-Da!  It’s not much compared to the math those ladies did for the Apollo program but it sure impressed the kitteh boys…… not that they’ll admit it.
