Homemade Tomato Soup

Like the rest of the gardeners I know...we have tomatoes.  I have been canning tomato juice.  I had a bit too much for another bunch of jars, so I made up some homemade tomato soup.  Really good and pulpy...is pulpy a word?  If not, it should be.  





Run your tomatoes through your juicer, strain off the pulp, pour into a kettle.  I added 1 T sugar, 2 t salt, 1 t pepper, 1 t garlic powder and 1 t of a spice mix - you could add whatever spice you want actually.  Bring to a boil, simmer on low for an hour - it will turn bright red and thicken up.  I added 1 T butter at end.  


I hate to say, but I will...(smile)...this is the BEST tomato soup I've ever eaten!  So simple, so healthy, so rewarding to make it from scratch.  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

Yum! I use home canned tomatoes for homemade soup in the winter months. LOVE it! And I see you paired it with a grilled cheese - my favorite alongside that soup.

Yummy.... Like I said, I'm not much of a tomato girl, but I LOVE homemade tomato soup.... I don't use any spices (other than a bit of baking soda to cut acidity), salt and pepper...but I add milk and butter...and Amish egg noodles.... And, of course, grilled cheese sammies to go with! :o) Robin
