“This is a recipe for homemade vegetable juice cocktail. You will need a pressure canner to do the whole batch, or scale it down to fewer servings, and drink within a couple of days. A great way to keep the taste of summer all year!”

Original recipe yields 10 quarts

Directions

  1. Use a juicer to process the tomatoes, celery, onion, green pepper, beets, carrots, and garlic. Place all of the juice into a large pot. Stir in the sugar, black pepper, horseradish, lemon juice, and enough water to make a thin consistency. Season with Worcestershire sauce to taste. Bring to a boil, and continue boiling for 20 minutes.
  2. Ladle into 1 quart jars leaving 3/4 inch of headspace. Stir 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt into each jar. Wipe rims clean, and place lids and rings onto jars. Process in a pressure canner for 35 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure.

juice tomatoes and let them sit over night in the fridge so the juice and water seperate, then baste the water out of the juice, this makes the vegetable juice more thicker

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.
