V-8 Juice for Canning
But I'm not sure why I'm bothering to can this.... my husband will drink it by the pitcher full!
8 quarts chopped fresh ripe tomatoes
1 large bell pepper, chopped
2 large onions shopped
1 1/2 cups diced celery
4 carrots diced
2 bay leaves
12 fresh basil leaves (2 teaspoon dried)
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
Place all ingredients, except lemon juice in a large stainless steel pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes until veggies are soft. I then run the mixture through the blender and strain. Return the juice to the pot and stir in the lemon juice and bring to a boil.
Pour juice into clean hot canning jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Process for 40 minutes in a boiling water bath.
