THIS RECIPE is my grandmother's. Originally Gram even made the tomato juice in it from scratch! Every time I return to Massachusetts for a visit home, Gram has this soup simmering on the stove. She's always loved to cook, and at age 95, she still enjoys making tomato soup and other favorite dishes. -Gerri Sysun, Narragansett, Rhode Island

"I like this soup, but my kids LOVE it; I've been making this for them for over a decade now. I only use 1 Tbs. of sugar or I use a packet of Stevie Also, I add my UNCOOKED egg noodles after the sugar, cover the pot and let it sit off heat for 20 min. The noodles cook in the soup saving me from cleaning an extra pot."

"My family all liked this soup including myself and I don't generally care for tomato soup. We try to avoid processed sugar in our house so I substituted honey for the sugar. The soup didn't thicken up as much as I thought it would, but it was still tasty."

"This is my granddaughter's favorite soup-she was so happy when I gave the recipe to her mother and now she makes it as well-so it really is grandma's tomato soup in our family too!"
