I'm not sure where the name of this soup originated, but my aunt in Pennsylvania shared the recipe with me. Even in our hot-Florida climate, this soup always satisfies. Family and friends frequently ask me to prepare it. - Nancy Ducharme, Deltona, Florida

When we lived in Michigan, this was a perfect comforting soup when blustery winds blew into town. The steaming bowls of soup warmed up icy toes just right! The Taste of Home Test Kitchen came up with this lighter version. —Christine Schenher, San Clemente, California
My family really enjoys this soup when we make it from our garden tomatoes. When those tomatoes are plentiful, I make a big batch and freeze it. Then we can enjoy it even after the garden is gone for the season.
