This home-made cream of tomato soup is a cinch to whip up using your home canning and dry mixes.
It’s the work of seconds to put together.
The taste is amazing, and it’s great knowing that it’s missing all the salt and refined sugars that are added to commercial brands these days to make up for — one suspects — lack of real ingredients with taste.
It’s thick, creamy and satisfying on a cool day, but still only 128 calories per cup.
