V-8 juice for canning

15 lbs ripe tomatoes, chopped (you want 8 quarts chopped)
1 large bell pepper, chopped fine
2 large onions, chopped fine
1 1/2 cups diced celery
2 bay leaves
12 fresh basil leaves or 2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice


1 Place all ingredients, except lemon juice, in a large stainless pot. Bring to a boil then simmer for 30 minutes-all veg should be soft.

2 Press veg through a fine sieve or food mill.

3 Return juice to pot, stir in lemon juice and bring to a boil.

4 Pour into clean hot jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Process for 35 minutes at altitudes up to 1000 feet.
