Homemade tomato soup

korbo, Aug 30, 12:36am
have always made my own tomato soup, and frozen in containers. This years lot is too rich for me.
What could it be that it is too rich,,?
the tomoatoes, or too much butter. just very rich

Perhaps like me. getting older and consequently the taste buds are changing . perhaps a lot quicker, hmmmm, but yeah. LOL.

I'm not clear about what "too rich" means. Do you mean too fatty? Too intensely flavoured? Too thick?

korbo, Aug 30, 4:48am
maybe what I meant to say. too tomatoey ?. then again had some for lunch and realise it is also too sweet. I guess some tomatoes are more flavoursome than others. will cut back on sugar next year.

Try a spoonful of sour cream on top when serving, sprinkled with a few chopped chives might help. I only put a tblsp sugar in mine.

different tomatoes types will change the flavor

davidt4, Aug 30, 10:15pm
I wouldn't add any sugar to tomato soup at all.

Thanks korbo. I'm sure others will appreciate it as well, especially when tomato season rolls round.

Thank you for the recipe, what size would the onions be ?

korbo, Sep 3, 12:45am
large onions,or whatever you have.
as I said above, I filll a certain pot. you could go to say 10kg of tomatoes, but original recipe was 7kg.

Adapted for soup maker.
500g tomatoes, skin removed
1 small onion
1 rasher of bacon
Make up to minimum mark with stock or water
Cook on smooth
As soon as finished cooking add 1 Tablespoon sago. Leave to cool.
Adjust thickness with milk after reheating and before serving. Reheat further if necessary but don't boil.
Season to taste.
I find many bought tomato soups and recipes too sweet.
