"I can this soup mixture (before adding the butter, flour and milk) about every other year. You determine how much you do at one time. I usually put up about 80 jars at a time, mostly in October when the weather has cooled down."

  1. Run the tomatoes through a food mill to remove the seeds and skins, and place in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the bouillon, sugar, salt, bay leaf, basil and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. (If you're going to can this mixture, process it now.)
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in flour all at once to form a roux, cook 1 minute. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, cooking and stirring constantly until thickened. Stir into tomato mixture and heat through.

I have made this several times and it is really, REALLY good. I have played around with it using half-and-half sometimes and cream others. I prefer using cream, because I like it creamy. I wo...

Very good. However, I did not use fresh tomatoes. Too much work. I used 2-16oz cans of diced tomatoes and 1- 16 oz can of tomato sauce. Also, make sure you use whole milk or half and half, 2...

This soup was wonderful. I did not have fresh tomatoes so I used (2) large cans of crushed tomatoes and a can of petite diced tomatoes. I also used half & half. It tasted like something from ...

I love, love this recipe! I do not have a food mill, so I peeled and seeded the tomatoes, then used my hand blender to puree. So good, thank-you!

Loved It!! I may never buy canned tomato soup again. I used two large cans of crushed tomatoes (processed 1 can in the food processor). I used 3 cups of 1% milk and 1 cup of whipping cream. ...

We thought this recipe was excellent. I used canned crushed tomatoes instead of fresh and 2% milk. It's also even better if you add a little more fresh pepper and sprinkle parmesan cheese over...

Excellent! I made this the day before I hosted a luncheon, then reheated the soup in a covered soup pot (as in a ceramic pot with a lid) inside the oven. I think it tasted better the day I se...

This bisque is fabulous!! I also used canned tomatoes plus a can of petite diced for texture. I would also recommend adding more sugar, and salt & pepper to taste. I also added a bit more dri...

Make this soup! Believe the reviews! It's an excellent recipe, and very forgiving with slight alterations. Lots of people seem to be using canned tomato. I have made both and the fresh is 10x be...
