Tomato Basil Soup

1 large can diced tomatoes
1 cup heavy cream (raw/unpasteurized/etc.)
1 stick of butter (raw/hormone free/antibiotic fee/etc.)
15 fresh basil leaves (or sage...I used sage and it was great!)
salt
pepper

In a large pot put in the diced tomatoes (juice and all) and put it on the stove over medium heat. Once it starts to bubble a little, turn it down to low/medium heat and let it simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Take off heat add basil/sage and puree or use stick blender to blend until mostly blended (I like some clumps of tomato). Put back over heat low heat and stir in the heavy cream. Then add butter and stir until all melted without boiling the soup.
Serve!

Snacks- baked pumpkin seeds or another seed of choice.
