I didn’t get enough tomatoes to make soup but I was gifted tomatoes from Melonie so I made this Deborah Madison favorite.
Saute some shallots in butter. Cut up your tomatoes and put them in the pot with salt. Let them slow cook all afternoon.
Whir with the stick blender. Strain into a new pot. I often skip that step. I add a plop of cream.
It’s some weird trick of the light but this photo look like there’s a golden lump in there.
