Easy creamy tomato soup (my Granny's recipe)
1 quart jar home canned tomatoes, juice and all (you can use the flash steamed ones too, use the whole ones)
Equal amounts of milk as tomatoes
Pinch of Baking Soda
Basil, salt, and pepper to taste.
Add tomatoes to a sauce pan, crush with your fingers THEN turn on the heat and heat till warm (when you stick your finger in it, you can take it very long)
In another sauce pan heat milk to the same temp (this is importnat!)
Add the soda to the milk and stirr.
Then add the milk to the tomatoes (NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!)
Add spices and enjoy! Serve with toasted bread or croutons. Easy, cheap, and mighty tastey!
