Expert Tips

Fully ripe, juicy tomatoes provide the best flavor in this soup. If your tomatoes aren’t completely ripe, you may need to increase the salt and sugar just a bit.

3 cans (14.5 oz each) diced tomatoes, undrained, can be substituted for the fresh tomatoes. Omit salt; increase sugar to 1 teaspoon.
