    -5lbs fresh tomatoes-use mixture of Romas, field and cluster or heirloom tomatoes
    -1 tbsp olive oil
    - .5 cup water
    - .25 cup fresh basil leaves
    - 1 tsp organic honey
    - sea salt and fresh ground pepper
    - juice of one fresh lemon


Serves 6

1. Wash tomatoes under cold running water. Remove green crowns.
2. Bring several cups of water to a boil in a large sauce or soup pan. Place whole tomatoes in boiling water water just long enough tosplit and loosen their outer skin. You may have to do this batches. Once the skins are loose remove the tomatoes from the boiling water and drop them in a bowl of ice water. This stops the cooking process and accelerates the cooling of the tomatoes. When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, loosen the skins with your hands. Quarter the tomatoes and remove the hard inner core.
3. In a Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Place all the tomaotes in the pot. Add .5 cup water. Bring the mixture to a boil and immediately reduce the heat. Add fresh basil, cover the pot and allow the tomatoes to simmer for about 30 minutes. Remove from heat.
4. Place a food mill over large bowl. transfer cook tomatoes to the food mill and slowly turn the handle to make a puree. Any remaining skins, seeds and other bits will not pass through the disc, and you can readily discard these. The soup will collect in the bowl.
5. Return puree soup to a saucepan and allow to simmer. Stir in the honey and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

* For more nutrition put a handleful or so of spinach leaves in the bottom of each soup bowl and laddle the soup over top.
