Cream of Tomato Soup

As tomato growing season draws to a close, I seem to enjoy each fresh tomato even more. The season is never long enough. Every one I harvest from now, until the first frost, is extra special. One of my favorite dishes made with fresh tomatoes, is this cream of tomato soup. I made it in a class recently, and people seemed to love it as much as I do. It is full of fresh tomato flavor.

I enjoy it served hot, but have been known to eat this soup cold, too. I prefer to use fresh tomatoes, but have also used my home canned tomatoes in a pinch. If you want a stronger tomato flavor- use a couple extra tomatoes.
