    Recipes Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

      I happen to come across this good, basic, tomato soup recipe, at allrecipes.com, but I did tweak the recipe just a bit to suit my taste. The original recipe states that it yields 6 servings, but since I quadrupled each recipe I had made, I can't contest to the exact amount of servings per each batch. And since I quadrupled the recipe in my 8 quart stockpot, I did cover the pot while bringing the vegetables to a boil. After it came to a boil, I then removed the lid, and gently boiled the vegetables for 25 minutes. This recipe is great for those who want to use up the numerous tomatoes they have in their vegetable garden.


      Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

      4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
      1 onion, finely chopped (1/2 of one large onion)
      4 whole cloves
      2 cups chicken broth
      2 tablespoons butter (I used 3 tablespoons)
      2 tablespoons flour (I used 3 tablespoons)
      1 teaspoon salt (I only used 1/2 teaspoon)
      2 teaspoons granulated sugar

      In a large stockpot over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, onion, cloves, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, and gently boil for 20 minutes. (If making more than one batch of soup in the stockpot, like I did, I suggest covering the pot with a lid. This allows the vegetables to come to a boil much quicker. And after the vegetables come to a boil, remove the lid, and gently boil the vegetables for 25 minutes.)

      Remove the stockpot from the heat, and run the vegetable mixture through a food mill into a large bowl, or pan. (I did try to remove any cloves I spotted, before running mixture through the food mill.) Discard any tomato/onion mixture left over in the food mill.

      In the now empty stockpot, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux, cooking until the roux is light golden brown in color. Quickly whisk in a bit of the tomato mixture, so that no lumps form, then stir in the rest of the tomato juice mixture.

      Season soup with the salt and sugar.

      Heat the soup through, then serve.

      Aps, just google "whole cloves" to view them.
      The cloves help to make this soup taste wonderful.
