My mom used to make a Tomato Soup with canned tomatoes, milk and baking soda. I remember something that the milk had to be just the right temp and before she added the tomatoes. Does anyone know how to make it this way?

I make homemade tomato soup with canned tomatoes all the time. I love tomato soup and grilled cheese for a quick lunch. I put my tomatoes into a sauce pan and heat them until they just start to simmer (low boil). I then add a pinch or 2 of baking soda to neutralize the acidity of the tomatoes. It will foam slightly and that tells you it is working. Add milk and heat again to simmer, add salt and pepper maybe a little butter or any other seasonings you prefer. Taste and adjust seasoning and serve hot. Hope you enjoy (12/30/2005)

Back in the "old days" they used to call this soup Tomato bisque. My mom amd grandmom used to make it all the time. It's just milk, tomato soup a dash of soda and canned tomatoes, do not let your milk get to a boil. Just a simmer. Add salt, and pepper to taste. We never really had a recipe for it just eyeball how much you want to make and go from there. WE used one can of tomatoes to two cans tomato soup and two cans milk . (12/31/2005)
