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...

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

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...

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...

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...
