These tomatoes are the last in my garden for the season. I decided to make an old recipe of mine, a spicy & clear tomato soup. Straight from the garden, with a veggie base to enhance the flavor. Such a simple recipe, and the taste is to die for! The addition of a couple cloves gives it a spicy taste, (a tip from grandma.) The perfect side is a grilled cheese sandwich, I made with my sons home-made rye bread. soooo good ! My neighbor made this recipe, and added pop-corn for a garnish. Sounds good.
