It’s the end of summer and I have a glut of tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes. Fortunately, the variety I chose for this year has that cherry tomato sweetness but isn’t too sweet. What to do with a giant bowl full of cherry tomatoes? Why tomato soup, of course! A few random Amish Paste and Early Girls found their way into the soup as well but it’s all good. The batch ended up making 3 pints of soup. Half a pint made it into my lunch but the rest I froze for future meals. Happy cooking and eating.
4 Quart Pot
1 or ½ pint freezer containers
Bowl full of cherry tomatoes, washed
¼ cup sliced onion
2 med garlic cloves, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
Slice the onion and garlic. Cut the tomatoes in half.
Add ½ cup of water to the pot.
Drop in the onion, garlic, and tomatoes, and salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about an hour.
Right in the pot, use the immersion blender to blend the mixture until smooth. Serve up bowls full for lunch or supper. Freeze the rest.
NOTE: I did not strain the blended soup to remove the seeds. I kind of like the seedy chew but if you don’t, go ahead and strain the seeds out.
