    After a late start to the season I ended up with a bumper harvest of ripe tomatoes.. here is a recipe I used make the most delicious tomato soup ..

    * About 4lbs tomatoes
    * 1 large onion
    * 1 or 2 cloves of garlic ( optional )
    * 1 large potato (grated)
    * Basil , fresh is best but I used dried, about a tea spoonful
    * 2 pints of vegetable stock ( I used Knorr stock cubes )
    * A dollop of olive
    * Salt and black pepper


    Method:

    * Finely chop the onions and garlic, place in a large stock pot and sweat in the olive oil until soft

    * Peel the tomatoes and chop then add to the pot with basil and seasoning.
    (steep them in boiling water for a few minutes and the skins come off easily )

    * Add the stock and simmer for about 40 mins

    * Add the grated potato and simmer for another 30 mins

    * If you like it smooth, whisk or liquidise then sift to remove seeds.

    Jim,

    Got a lot of cherry tomatoes left on the plants so I made a Chilli-con-carne heavily flavoured with tomato. Don't have a recipe I just wing it - means things never taste the same twice:Laughing:
