Slow-Cooker Tomato Soup

Lee Harrelson

My husband is tomato crazy. Every year he plants 100 tomato plants in our garden. Even with our big family, that's a lot of tomatoes to eat. I'm constantly on the lookout for ways to use them up. In the summer I make this with fresh tomatoes, but it's also just as tasty made with either store-bought canned or home-canned tomatoes.
