For this tomato soup I used fresh ginger and ground cloves. The addition of the cloves and ginger imparts an unusual piquant flavor and a pleasant lingering heat to the back of the palate. Saute one onion, two minced garlic cloves, and a one inch piece of fresh ginger chopped fine. Next add a big batch of chopped tomatoes, two tablespoons of sugar, one half a teaspoon of ground cloves and salt and pepper to taste.
With hurricane Matthew on the horizon everyone is battening down the hatches. Here in North Georgia we are hoping for some residual rain due a season long drought. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
