White Tomato Foam

I was so curious about white tomato foam. I remember that I have seen it on tv in some kind of cooking show where they wanted to cook a white tomato soup and it was screwed up completly, because it was all red. I was wondering if I can make it. After some research online I felt like doing it today. It is surprisingly easy!

400 g tomatoes
2-3 basil leaves
1 twig thyme
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon elder vinegar or white wine vinegar

2 gelatine leaves
100 ml heavy cream

Chop tomatos and mash. Add herbs, sugar, salt and bring to boil. Put a kitchen cloth in a sieve and let the white tomato juice drip. Warm it, add gelatine and vinegar. Beat over icy water until frothy. Stir in beaten heavy cream. Leave for 1 hour in the fridge.
