Clear Tomato Soup

"Cut in thin slices 1 lb. fresh tomatoes, and put into enough ordinary clear soup for, say, six people; simmer gently for 1 hour, strain through a clean cloth, re-boil, and serve with fried croutons, about two-shilling-piece size, piled with stiffly whipped cream, one to each person on a separate plate. The cream softens the acidity of the tomatoes and greatly improves the flavour."
Agnes Jekyll A Little Dinner Before the Play

They are coming thick and fast now.

Can we have some? My mum has wicked tomato recipes... OOOh, especially if we could have some eggs as well, that would be awesome!

By the way, we found the fishmonger in the end. You were right, it was closed.

Well, now you know where it is anyway and they'll be open again in a week.
Eggs still aren't happening - another month maybe??
