I made this last year and we ran out quickly. Now that the tomatos are on, my DH requested this one specifically. It was great and my only regret is that I didn't can more of it last year. I won't make that mistake again :) ... My 30 medium tomatos worked out to be about 24 cups of quartered tomatoes. This year I'll be running this through my vitamix to smooth everything out easily. Thanks for this recipe!
I just finished canning the juice and I was hoping to have a little left over to taste it cold, but all the Bloody Mary juice went into the jars.I did make this last year but did not do a review until I tasted it.If your looking for some very very good Bloody Mary Juice give this a try. I made mine a little hotter than what the recipe calls for, but thats the way I like it.As you can see by the pictures, I canned 9 quarts and 2 half gallon! I hope this makes it until next years tomato crop, but I doubt it! This was made by request from a friend that has some from last years canning and I got tired of him asking when are you doing the Bloody Mary Juice!
I have a Kitchen Aid attachment that bypasses most of the steps and you can process 5 times as much in half the time by using the fruit and juice strainer!
Great Recipe, made about 4.5 quarts for my 30 tomatoes. Only thing was we added more lemon juice (1/2 cup) since tomatoes are a low acidic food to preserve. (Recommended 2 tbsp per quart). We also added a little more garlic and spice. Thanks!
Perfect! When I canned it in August I thought it was good. Fast forward to October and I just tasted it again. YUM! What a difference time makes. Giving those flavors time to meld gives it a whole new depth of flavor. This year I just made it as a bi-product of canning tomatoes and didn't want to waste the juice. Next year I will specifically buy tomatoes to make this!!! This is a keeper!!! Thanks so much for sharing your family recipe.
Wonderful and worth the effort. I had all of these ingredients from end of the garden and needed something else to make. (had already canned the sauces, etc) This will not be a "Now what am I going to make?" But more like, "Don't forget to make!" recipe. And healthy to boot!
