Trust me the flavor is much greater than unripe forced tomatoes.

Puree with a hand held liquidizer or gradually put the soup through a worktop blender in batches.
Reheat in a pot.
Serve in warm dishes with crusty wholemeal rolls or homemade garlic bread.
Here's a quick and easy way to get a creamy smooth soup.
After liquidizing, press the soup gradually through a sieve. You should only have the tomato skins left behind in the sieve.
