Homemade Tomato Soup is Too Sweet?

I made homemade tomato soup as I can't have salt. It tastes really good, but is a bit too sweet. Vinegar sounded like only thing I could use, but pickle juice is full of sodium.


It was a little thin so I put in a little mashed potato flakes. I used half and half to make it a bit creamier, but help! It's still too sweet. Thanks.

You don't have to use pickle juice if you need vinegar. Just use vinegar. Plain cider vinegar.

OhMy!!! Thanks so much! At one time a "depression era " soup called Beans and Greens was a weekly staple in Italian households.Now.....a delicacy. I have put this together for 60 years.


But, I used a ham bone from an already flavored ham. HUGE,HUGE
MISTAKE ! Idid not get it until it was done. Thanks again for the tip and for saving me $ .

To cut the sweet taste I always use baking soda. Just a pinch though otherwise it will become bland. Works great if you're making spaghetti sauce also.

Lemon and/or lime juice would probably do the trick, too.

Be sure you're not using canned tomatoes with added sugar.
