Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Process tomatoes, onion, 3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon chopped celery, carrot, beet, green bell pepper, and garlic through a juicer.
  2. Stir vegetable juices, water, 1 1/4 teaspoons white sugar, lemon juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper together in a large pot. Bring to a boil and cook until flavors blend, about 20 minutes.
  3. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Ladle juice into a quart jar. Stir 1 tablespoon white sugar and 1 teaspoon salt into the juice. Wipe the rim of the jar with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lid and screw on ring.
  4. Process juice in a pressure canner at 10 pounds of pressure for 35 minutes.
  5. Remove the jar from the pressure canner and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface until cool. Once cool, press the top of the lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.

I made this but incorporated the pulp by simply adding all of the ingredients, chopped, to a pot and boiling for 20 minutes. This is then allowed to cool and transferred to a blender to puree....

I was a bit skimpy on the water since I like a heartier flavor. This is nothing like V8. I had problems with the horseradish as well. Since it is a solid, it doesn't dissolve and just floats a...

Everything is better with some hot sauce! I cooked everything together and instead of a juicer, I blended it in the blender. If you are like me and don't can much and also like smoothies, you c...

Followed recipe but added two jalapeño peppers and omitted the horseradish. Makes a great Bloody Mary.

I juiced some watercress and parsley along with the veggies. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. My fresh tomatoes were pretty sweet so I adjusted sugar accordingly. I will also add less salt next...

I made this raw, as I am juicing. However there are some serious oddities in the amounts of ingredients. 3/8 of a carrot? What does that even mean? And two listed amounts of celery? Also the a...

Absolutely delicious!!! I skipped the horseradish and Worcestershire sauce, only because I didn't have it. I added 1 romaine leaf and some parsley. Blended it, strained and placed in a cheeseclo...
