Creamy Tomato Soup

Life has changed drastically for our family in the last 11 years. Eleven years ago, we were living on top of a mountain outside Asheville, NC where we had a huge garden & I canned all summer long. I always made sure to can at least two dozen quart jars of tomato juice just so I could make my cream of tomato soup until the next year’s garden started producing.

Now we live in a high-rise in the heart of downtown Denver, CO & I no longer have my garden, nor do I can anymore. (Our daughter was 9 years old before she knew you could buy jam in the grocery store.) And while, yes, home canned tastes incredible, store bought tomato juice works just as well & this cream of tomato soup recipe is still a staple in our house.
