       1 c  Chopped onions
       1 c  Chopped celery

   Procedure: To prepare tomatoes, follow directions for Spaghetti Sauce
   Without Meat. Saute beef or sausage until brown. Add garlic, onion,
   celery or green pepper and mushrooms, if desired. Cook until vegetables
   are tender. Combine with tomato pulp in large saucepan. Add spices,
   salt, and sugar. Bring to a boil. Simmer, uncovered, until thick enough
   for serving. At this time initial volume will have been reduced by
   nearly one-half. Stir frequently to avoid burning. Fill jars, leaving
   1-inch headspace. Adjust lids and process according to the
   recommendations in Table 1 or Table 2 depending on the method of canning
   used.
