Fresh Tomato Soup - from scratch

Elaine Douglas


In the Fall when fresh field tomatoes are at their best I make a huge batch of this soup and freeze it for use over the Winter. It freezes very well and tastes fresh when defrosted.
This is much better than the commercially canned soup and I know that I have used the best ingredients with no chemical preservatives.
