This recipe is much better than V8! And much less sodium than V8! I used 2 teaspoons of canning salt and 3/4 cup of white sugar. I also added a splash of Tabasco to give it a slight kick. A great recipe that's good for you too!
Excellent results! We omitted all sugar and reduced salt to less than 1/8 cup. We also increased the horseradish and Worcestershire to give more zip. Result is not spicy just good flavor. To make the juice thicker (more like V8) we added 3 quarts stewed tomatos (blended to liquid and then strained to remove seeds). Very good. Everyone agrees it is better than V8.
We've made this recipe twice. Each time we've reduced the sugar called for and actually think we may try leaving it out altogether next time as we found it to be overly sweet both times. But we've been pleased overall with the recipe and will be tyring it again.
I scaled the recipe to 4 servings and added a little more carrot than it called for. I also added some other fresh veggies from the garden like chives and chard. I drank it raw. I added braggs amino liquid (like soy sauce) and lime omitting the sugar. amazing!
I made this reduced to one serving. I didn't have beets but had all of the other ingredients. The flavor was amazing. I will cut down on the onion next time because it packed a powerful punch! I would also like to add beets next time I make it.
I really like this juice! I bought a juicer so that I could make my own vegetable juice without all the salt of V8. I scaled this recipe down and made enough for a couple days. I'd like to can it but I am unsure of how to. I don't own a pressure canner. Anyways I added a little extra worcestshire and horseraddish because it was a little bland for my taste. Good overall though!!
While it is healthier than store bought since the salt is controlled it took an awfully long time to render mediocre flavor. Plus the ingredients cost more than to buy it pre-made. My suggestion to anyone trying this recipe is to arm yourself with lots of spices.
I downsized this recipe considerably so maybe that's one reason why it seemed to not be perfect although it's good. Also I don't know if some of my veggies were the same size as the recipe asks for. After all there are different sizes of green peppers carrots etc! I'll probably try it again soon that's how much I liked it.
