- 1 pint home-canned tomatoes (or can of STEWED tomatoes from the grocers)
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
- 3-4 cups milk (approximately)
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- salt and pepper
Pour in large saucepan, bring to a boil - quickly stir in baking soda - It will bubble and foam. Stir in milk, salt and pepper, and the butter. Cook over low heat till butter melts.
This is a thin soup floating with tomato chunks and crackers and butter. This (plus homemade potato soup) is what our family of 9 were raised on!
Source: it was handed down in my family. My dad showed mother how to make it when they were married.
