Mimi's Tomato Soup
this comes from my maternal grandmother. I think it came from her "Inglenook"Cookbook.
1clean, core and dice whole tomatoes, mash with potato masher, sprinkle with baking soda, cook on low until tomatoes are soft app. 10 min.Press tomatoes through a sieve.
2make a roux with flour and milk. wisk until smooth. Add slowly to the tomatoes. cook over low heat until it begins to thicken.Be careful, and stir often so it doesn't scorch.
3add butter and season with salt & pepper to taste, toward the end of cooking.
