GRANDMA’S CREAM OF TOMATO SOUP (a yummy old fashioned treat)
2 (28 oz) cans Hunts Whole Tomatoes (with juice) 4 T. Butter
Salt 4 T. Flour
Sugar 2 ½ cups Milk
¾ cup Hot Water 1 tsp. Baking Soda
In large pot, bring tomatoes to a boil (chop with spoon into small pieces). Add salt and sugar to taste. Add about ¾ cup hot water (makes up for liquid that is lost when it boils).
In separate medium pot, melt the butter. Add the flour. Then add the milk gradually, stirring constantly. Blend well, and bring to a boil to make a thick gravy (keep stirring).
Add the baking soda to the boiling tomatoes, then add the gravy mixture. Blend well. ENJOY!
(*Grilled Cheese Sandwiches go really well with this !!)
