    Sounds great, except for the brown sugar. I think I can leave that out. But going to try it, thanks!

    What is the purpose of the brown sugar?

    there are 2 types of brown sugar commonly used for cooking, light and dark, light is used more in baking, such as cookies, and sauces, while dark is more commonly used in richer foods such as gingerbread and such, thou some prefer the difference in certain cooking. both sugars contain molasses, dark having more, that adds moisture to the tomatoes are naturally acidic , (this dosent change the acidic level thou,) and the sugar also helps enhance the flavors of other spices in the soup mixture

    Just made this and it is real good. Used 2C of beef stock instead of the bullion. Probably won't be enough for me to take to work tomorrow.
