Here is my favorite, from KatieC:

Roasted Tomato Garlic Soup
Recipe By :Katie
12 tomatoes -- *see Note
2 carrots -- cut in 1" pieces
1 large onion -- quartered
2 whole heads garlic -- peeled (or more, to taste)
olive oil
2 cups chicken broth -- (or 3)
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil -- (or 1 Tbsp. dried)
cream -- to taste

Core tomatoes and cut in half. Place, cut side up, on foil covered cookie sheet with carrots, onion and garlic. Brush with olive oil. Bake at 400F for about an hour, or until vegies are roasted and a little blackened. Place in a large saucepan with the chicken broth and basil and simmer for about 10 minutes. Blend with a stick blender (or in small batches in a blender) until almost smooth. Add cream to taste. To can: Process in a pressure canner, pints for 60 min. and quarts for 70 min.For dial gauge canners use 11 pounds pressure at 0-2000 ft., 12 lbs. at 2001-4000 ft., 13 lbs. at 4001-6000 ft. and 14 lbs. above 6000 ft. For weighted gauge canners use 10 lbs. pressure at 0-1000 ft., and 15 lbs. over 1000 ft. *Note: These measurements are approximate...I use whatever it takes to cover the cookie sheet. This makes 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of soup.

I didn't have a stick blender so I just put the veggies through my Foley food mill after roasting them. It worked great.

Spiced Tomato Soup:
Cooking Directions:
4 quarts chopped peeled cored tomatoes
3 1/2 cups chopped onions
2 1/2 cups chopped celery
2 cups chopped sweet red peppers
1 cup sliced carrots
7 bay leaves
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 garlic clove
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons salt

Prepare Ball brand or Kerr brand jars and closures according to
manufacturer's instructions.

Combine tomatoes, onions, celery, peppers, carrots, bay leaves, cloves and
garlic in a large saucepot. Simmer until soft. Press through a sieve or
food mill. Add sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat 15 minutes.

Carefully ladle hot soup into hot jars, leaving 1-inch headspace. Wipe
jar rim clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass.
Screw band down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met
-- fingertip tight.

Process pints 20 minutes at 10 pounds pressure in a steam-pressure canner.
For elevations higher than 1,000 feet, increase pressure accordingly
following cooker manufacturer's recommendation.

This recipe yields about 4 pints.

I would taste it before I added the full amount of sugar in case you don't like it that sweet.
