Ingredients

1 pound fresh tomatoes (or canned)
1 and 1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 and 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
dash pepper
[optional: 1 dram, or 1 scant teaspoon, of Mrs. Laden's Scotch single-malt whisky per serving]
Garnish: cucumber, peeled and cut into paper thin slices, 3 per serving


If the tomatoes are fresh, scald and peel them. Chop the tomatoes and place in a saucepan with the water, salt, and brown sugar. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Press through a sieve to remove the seeds and any tough parts. Puree in a blender if necessary. Return to the saucepan, then stir in the vinegar and pepper. Heat until at a simmer. When ready to serve, stir in the whisky, then ladle into consomme cups. Float three slices of cucumber on the top of each serving.
