Pressure cooking is making a comeback! This comfort soup is a perfect example of why. It is all-day-cooking-taste with little effort. This is one of my childhood memories of after kindergarten (half-day) at Grandma's house. If you have an abundance of homegrown tomatoes this is a good excuse to freeze them.

  • Stir baking soda into tomato mixture until no longer bubbling. Add milk, cream, salt, and pepper to tomato mixture. Blend soup with a hand-held blender. Heat soup over medium-low heat, stirring often, until heated through, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use home-canned, frozen, or commercially canned tomatoes.

Water can be used in place of chicken broth for a vegetarian option.

You can use a regular blender if you don't have a hand-held. If using regular blender, cool soup before blending.
