This had to be THE best tomato juice I have ever had! The celery was the perfect touch and I loved the paprika! Thanks for sharing this recipe Renegade!

I made this today and I must say it was outstanding! Surprisingly, the bay leaf really added a nice, new taste. It only made 1 qt. but I used about 16 smaller tomatoes from our garden. I suspect this was why it only made 1 Qt. Otherwise, soooo much better than any other tomato juice I have ever tried. My first use was in a bloddy mary and it was outstanding!
