  1. Cook tomatoes, celery, carrots, onion, green peppers, garlic, bay leaf, and parsley in a large pot until mushy, approximately 30-45 minutes.
  2. Remove the bay leaf.
  3. Working in batches, place the vegetable mixture into a blender and puree.
  4. Using a spatula, press each pureed batch through a fine sieve to remove any extra seeds.
  5. Place back in a large pot and add the sugar, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, salt, and tobasco (1/2 T. tobasco is very mild, so you may wish to add more now or add when mixing your drink).
  6. Heat this to a boil.
  7. Pour into clean quart jars and add prepared lids.
  8. Process in a boiling water canner for 40 minutes.
