      The taste of this was marvellous, even if the soup was a little thin. I wonder if this was because of some confusion on how many tomatoes to use. I had about 20 plum tomatoes, but there is no way they weighed four pounds -- more like 1-1/2 pounds. Next time I would add a few more tomatoes or simmer a little longer just to make it a touch thicker.

      This soup was delicious. It had a savory taste, and great texture! The last time I made tomato soup, I made the dumb mistake of leaving the seeds in, and this time I made sure to take them out. I would definitely make this again, maybe a little thinner next time
