            For decades, countless children across the U.S. have eagerly consumed bowls of a steamy reddish-orange liquid that is as easy to make as it is comforting to eat: tomato soup. In Souper Tomatoes, culinary historian Andrew F. Smith tells the story of how tomato soup has become a regular staple in practically every American kitchen. This saga, he writes, “is a juicy tale filled with unexpected twists and turns. It is action packed, peopled with seedsmen and farmers, grocers and scientists, commercial artists and hard-hitting advertisers, and just plain old every-day consumers—all of whom have contributed to the transformation of tomato soup into one of America’s favorite dishes.”

            Smith explores the prehistoric origin of soup and traces its development through the nineteenth century. He then focuses on how the tomato was introduced in Europe and America. Now America—and New Jersey—take center stage, as Smith examines the rise of the canning industry, particularly in New Jersey, and the complex distribution and advertising networks that transformed tomato soup into a household staple. The reader will learn how a scientific whiz at the Joseph Campbell Preserve Company in New Jersey produced the world’s first successful condensed soup and persuaded American homemakers to make this bit of canned wizardry a staple food product.

            In the evolution of the business from a mom-and-pop shop to a fully automated global business, the tomato has evolved, as well. New varieties of this fruit were bred to have traits making them perfect for canning. One of the leading breeds? The Rutgers tomato.

            Souper Tomatoes concludes with an investigation of tomato soup as an icon of American life. Over one hundred historical recipes for soups including tomatoes as an ingredient make this book a culinary, as well as a historical, delight.

A somewhat more technical book than for hobbyist reading. It's well researched. Since I have a professional interest in tomatoes, it fits well in my library. Not an Amy Stewart-type read, however!

Smith's Souper Tomatoes is exactly what you would expect: 178 pp (+ references and index) on every aspect of the history of tomatoes and soup. Chapters cover the origin of soups, the origins of tomatoes, the tomato canning industry, the tomato soup industry and finally a collection of historical recipes. The tomato originated in South America and was brought to Europe in the 16th century. New Jersey proved to have the ideal climate and was the early center of the industry. Tomato canning began about the time of the Civil War. Initially most work was done by hand, but processing and canning were mechanized by turn of the century. California displaced NJ as the leader in tomato growing owing to a longer growing season and larger fields better suited to mechanical harvesting. Major efforts were made over the years to develop new tomato strains, especially the Rutgers tomato, and later California strains.
Initially all tomato products were produced and canned whenever the crop was ripe. Today ripe tomatoes are processed to juice concentrate. Soup, juice and related tomato products are made from concentrate all year round. The various processes are described in detail, but are not overly technical. More illustrations would have been helpful.
Souper Tomatoes is Smith's third book on the subject. Earlier ones include The Tomato in America, 1994 and Pure Ketchup, 1996.
For those who really want to know about this esoteric subject, Souper Tomatoes is a great read.

If you like reading about domestic history, you'll like this book, even if you don't care about tomatoes or tomato soup. Well researched, well written, it's clear the author had a good, if exhausitve time writing it. Writing about wars and battles is all very well, but to me, this gives more insight about American history than any thing I've read in a long time.
