One quart sifted tomato, 1 quart new milk, 1 teaspoon soda, a large piece of butter, salt, pepper. Heat the tomato and milk separately. When each has boiled put the soda in the tomato, stir and mix with the milk. Pour over broken cracker.
Boil a soup bone very slowly 6 hours, add 1 pint tomatoes boiling all together 20 minutes. Then strain and add half a teacupful of tapioca, after it has been soaked half an hour, in clear water. Let the whole boil half an hour and serve. A little celery (chopped fine) is a great addition.
