|Tomato harvest, what to do? Tomato soup for dinner! |
3½ pounds of Principe Borghese and a couple of Brandywines.
|Chop up one onion and smash 6 cloves of garlic.|
|Saute onions & garlic until soft.|
|Add tomatoes, smash so their skins break.|
|Let simmer for about an hour.|
|Into the "witch's hat"!|
|Put through food mill to remove seeds and skins|
|Don't forget to scrape all the thick goodness from the outside!|
|If it's thick enough for you now ... EAT!|
If not, continue reading ...
|Melt ½ cup of butter|
|Whisk in ½ cup of flour until it's thick ...|
|continue cooking while constantly whisking |
for a couple minutes so the flour cooks
and doesn't taste "floury"
|Quickly stir in a ladle full of the soup, keep stirring!|
Add a few ladles until it's no longer thick,
then add to the soup while constantly whisking!
|Enjoy with a grilled cheese sandwich!|
