Tomato Bisque

Yield about 2 quarts

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds tomatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 quart milk, scalded
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed cracker crumbs (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Place tomatoes in a small Dutch oven; cook, uncovered, over medium heat until tender. Add soda, stirring well. Strain tomato mixture through a fine-meshed sieve, mashing pulp with back of a spoon; discard the pulp.

  2. Return strained tomato mixture to Dutch oven; add milk, butter, salt, pepper, and cracker crumbs, if desired. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated.
