Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato Basil Soup

8 to 10 tomatoes, peeled, cored and chopped, or 4 c canned crushed
4 c tomato juice or part tomato juice, part chicken or vegetable stock
12 to 14 fresh basil leaves
1 c heavy cream
1/2 c (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
Salt and pepper to taste

Over medium heat, combine tomatoes and juice in a large saucepan and
simmer for 30 minutes. In a food processor, combine tomato mixture and
basil leaves in several small batches and process until smooth. Return
blended mixture to saucepan over low heat. Stir in cream and butter,
then season with salt and pepper. Continue stirring over low heat
until soup is heated through. Serves 8.

Paul is just starting to get a few tiny green tomatoes on his plants.
I can't wait for the crop to be ready to pick.
I'll try this soup for sure. Thanks!!
