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 love this Tomato Juice. I will be making this again. We really liked this a lot.
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!
Five Star Recipe! Delicious and easy to make. I used my Vita-Mixer instead of the food mill and left skins and fiber. I like this tomato juice better than any commercial juice I have ever bought. Most have way too much salt and basically no fiber. Thanks for posting.
mine turned out wonderful... had to guess on the amount of tomatoes as I used cherry tomatoes and some plum tomatoes...(mostly cherry) I was very very happy with the results from this recipe was unsure how using cherry tomatoes would turn out but it worked fine..very yummy I didnot have a bay leaf..but other than that did exactly as posted.. my guessing must of been pretty close as I got 2 quarts and a little more than a pint...wonderful recipe..will make again with "regular" tomatoes but it is also nice to know that cherry work in this recipe also
I only had yellow tomatoes so that's what I used. Very tasty, the paprika and bay leaf gave it just that right touch. I didn't have any celery on hand so I used celery salt and dried parsley. I plan on making this with Roma tomatoes next time but will continue making batches of the yellow tomatoes also.
This is pretty good. I had never had tomato juice before, but my sister said it was good, and I had tomatoes from my MIL. I can drink it plain, but will most likely use it in cooking.
I'm sure some with love this recipe. I thought the celery was too powerful.
I never cared much for tomato juice until I tried this recipe with fresh tomatoes from my garden. This is the best tasting tomato juice I have ever tasted. This surpasses any store bought juice in flavor and since it is made fresh - no preservatives or other added chemicals!
