Tomato Soup

Recipe for Tomato Soup


3 cups peeled tomatoes, fresh or canned and drained
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 pint milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon butter
flour (optional, for thickening)


Bring the tomatoes to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Mash the tomatoes with a potato masher.

Add the baking soda. Let the foam subside and add milk, salt, pepper, and butter.

Heat but do not boil, and serve immediately.

Optional: If you would like the soup to be thicker, add in a couple teaspoons—one at a time—of flour to the pot, whisking and tasting until you achieve the desired consistency.


4 servings.
