“This is a recipe that was given to me by my sister-in-law. I was looking for a way to use up my garden tomotoes. This recipe is very easy to make and quite tasty. Although the recipe says to press through a sieve, I ran everything through a blender to save time. It made the soup a little more pulpy and not as smooth as some people prefer. Whatever your preference.”
