Chunky Tomato Oregano Soup.

This recipe is designed to be used with fresh vine ripened tomatoes. Canned tomatoes are good but fresh are great in this recipe. With so many tomatoes still available at this time of year that shouldn’t be a problem.

This is a tasty soup that can be made and properly safely bottled in mason jars too.  It’s perfect to enjoy during the coming winter months too as a welcome taste of summer.

Vine ripened tomatoes are great for this recipe but you can use the same amount of canned tomatoes out of season.

Come February, a grilled cheese sandwich and a steaming bowl of this delicious soup will make a welcome lunch indeed.

Although this is meant to be a chunky tomato soup, it is easily pureed as well if you prefer a smooth tomato soup. The pinch of brown sugar added to the soup just brings out the natural sweetness of the ripe tomatoes.

Oregano is great in this recipe but you can use Basil as well, if you prefer.
