I followed this fairly closely. I used ground cloves, and I thought that was perfect, never would have thought of it myself. The soup was good, but I like creamier tomato soup with basil and garlic better. WARNING: if you blend the soup as shown in the video, you are getting a totally different soup than the original recipe makes. Running it through a food mill takes out all the skins, seeds, and most of the onion, so you just get the tomato juice and pulp with onion flavor. So... BLENDER: thicker with all the solids mixed in and stronger onion taste, FOOD MILL: thinner with just the tomato flavor. Another option many have suggested is to blend and then strain through a sieve, but I think you would still be getting too much onion that way. The food mill is definitely my top choice for this soup.
