Veggie Juice

We still had quite a few tomatoes in our freezer and new green tomatoes are coming onto the plants in the garden so I decided it's time to use up some of last years bounty before this years takes over.
We've made tomato juice several times and it gets drank up in a hurry.
It's great mixed with a cold brew.
We vary the recipe according to what we have on hand & add a bit of dried salsa mix.

In a large kettle cook the tomatoes, onions,peppers,celery sticks and water until the veggies are soft and mushy.
                                             Remove from heat and strain in a large bowl
Then put the juice back into the large kettle.
Add the salt, sugar, lemon juice and celery salt.
Boil for 10 minutes on medium heat.
Pour into jars & process.

Oh that looks so good! We love to make red eyes (that's what we call clamato and beer) - they are soooo good. I'm going to have to try this.

My Mother would have loved that stuff.
I've never been much of a veggie juice drinker, but I'd like to try it with a cold brew. Interesting....
