Peel tomatoes by dropping into boiling water until skins crack (about 1 minutes). Slice onions; put tomatoes, onions, and celery in big pot. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes. Add bouillon, salts, pepper, bay leaves, oregano and bacon and cook slowly, covered, for several hours. Midway through cooking, mash everything well with a potato masher.
