When tomatoes are in season, my family knows they can expect to see this soup on the dinner table. It tastes better than any store-bought soup.—Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
