This is not your mama’s canned tomato soup. This Creamy Heirloom Tomato Soup is on a completely different level and you will never ever go back. Use the best quality vine-ripened tomatoes you can find, heirlooms if they are available. And please please please don’t cheat and use milk, the taste explosion just won’t be the same.
5 lbs tomatoes, cored
1 tbsp sea salt
