Hot and Spicy Tomato Juice


  • 40 to 50 medium tomatoes Use them all up here - Roma, Celebrity, Big Boy and any others you have
  • 2 onions sweet yellow or vidalia work best
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 green peppers
  • 4 jalapeno peppers
  • 4 cayenne peppers
  • 2 seranno peppers
  • 4 Cajun Belles optional
  • 4 cloves of garlic


  1. If you have a food processor - chop up the tomatoes, onion, peppers and garlic (seeds and all) into a liquidy pulp and place on low to medium heat and cook down for an hour or so, stirring often to avoid scorching the bottom of the pan. If you don't have a food processor - no worries - just chop up into small pieces and throw in a large pot and cook down. It may take a little longer - but it works just as well. The important thing is to get the tomato and vegetable mixture soft and cooked down to run it easily through a strainer or food mill.
  2. When the mixture has heated and cooked down - strain it through a food mill into a clean pot to remove all of the skins and seeds.
  3. Now add black pepper, celery and garlic salt. Add to taste - some like a little more - some a little less
  4. Heat on a low simmering boil for another 30 to 45 minutes.
  5. Simply can up into quart jars, put on your lids and then water bath for 30 minutes.
