In a stockpot over medium heat, combine 4 cups fresh chopped tomatoes, 1 onion sliced, 4 whole cloves and 2 cups chicken broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20mins to blend all of the flavors. Remove from heat and run the mixture through a food mill into a large bowl or pan. Discard any stuff left over in the food mill. Now melt 2 tbsp butter over medium heat. Stir in 2 tbsp all-purpose flour to make a roux. Cook the roux till medium brown. Gradually whisk in a bit of the tomato mixture, so that no lumps form, then stir in the rest. Season with sugar and salt and adjust to taste.
