SOUPE AU PARADIS (Recipes Found!)

I have been reorganizing my books, and in particular, cookbooks.  It is not a small task and I am only about halfway through the process.  My hope is that I can actually find what I am looking for…when I am looking for it!  When I started this blog in 2012, I began putting up family recipes and all my tried and true recipes as I came across them.   However, there were 3 in the tried and true category that I could never find.  This week as I was flipping through my copy of JOY OF COOKING, out fell the three I had searched for.  Here is the first one, which I got from a friend back in the early 80’s;  it’s a cold soup which is best suited for summer, but now that I have found it, I am posting it right away!


5 pounds tomatoes, peeled.  Blend and strain.

Add 1/3 cup lemon juice, 1/3 cup sugar, 2-1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 cup safflower or canola oil, not olive oil.  Mix well.  Then mix in 1-1/2 cups of sour cream.  Chill for at least 2 or 3 hours.

Garnish with melon balls (the best part!) and fresh mint.
