Well, it was one of those days that one hopes fervently to get to the market but fails to actually do so. I had only a bit of cream, but I did have fresh tomatoes and basil, so thought I'd give it a try. It was bitter, but we're in winter now, so I don't expect really sweet tomatoes, and I had to add quite a lot of sugar. Next time I'll seed my tomatoes as other reviewers suggested. I added a tablespoon or so of butter; I would not have added half a cup of butter to a soup under any circumstances. I thought the soup was very good anyway. It had a clean, fresh taste and a steady hum of basil underneath all the tomatoes. Hubby liked it very much.
