"One of the first questions I asked on this site was for homemade V-8 juice. Have been constantly looking until the other day at the dentist office when the assistant gave me her mother's recipe. Wow!, so simple and so good.07/19/08: UPDATE! I made a large pitcher-full today and added about 11/2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce for an added kick. The guys really liked it! Me?....still like the original best. 09/16/08: ANOTHER UPDATE: I have now had two different members point out to me that the former name of this name of this recipe, Homemade V-8 Juice, is a poor choice as it is not homemade.......and I agree, thus the new name."
Serving Size: 1 (1398 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"I think v8 juice has 8 different veggies in it, Am i right or wrong. Plus I do not see anything homemade with this recipe."
"This has nothing to do with homemade."
"i love V8, i guess some things you just cant subsitute, it tasted kinda clovey, but still just like plain ol' tomato juice, which is ok, but the extra salt isnt worth it"
"I am giving no stars because 7 reviewers can't be wrong. I am a V8 aholic, I couldn't wait to try this recipe, I was disappointed I didn't think it tasted like V8. To me it tasted like tomato juice with cloves in it. & reviewers can't be wrong, try it. Sorry HH#2"
"Oh wow! I LOVE V-8 but not the price of it. I added a tsp and tasted it and loved it. But I wanted a bit more kick so I added another 1/2 tsp. I love the V-8 spicy and the V-8 lemon twist so I bet some hot sauce and lemon juice would be awesome added to it. A do over recipe! Thanks for a winner Happy Harry!!"
"This gave it the extra boost,,yummy"
"Just love it! As an ex-pat working in S.E. Asia, I really miss my V8. When I do find it, it is very expensive. Now I can enjoy it at all times. Thanks for sharing. You made my day."
"My DH enjoyed and really couldnt taste a big difference between this and the real V-8 juice. A lot less expensive too!"
"Very tasty!! I love V8!!!! Thanks, Harry!!"
"I gave this five stars because it taste better to me than the real thing. My husband is the V-8 drinker in our house. I usually drink plain tomato because I don't like a certain flavor that V-8 has but this drink doesn't have that. Thanks Happy Harry #2. Bullwinkle"
"I almost wish I did not find this!! Just like you Happy Harry#2 I have been searching high and low for a V-8 recipe, have made a few different ones, but this gets thumbs up from me, you just posted this and I have already consumed 3 qrts.! Only complaint is I find it a tad 'clove-y', not sure if regular V-8 contains cloves, but one other recipe I made in the past for a 'spicy V-8' contained cloves also. I would recommend using low-sodium Tomato juice, if the next person who makes this is a confirmed V-8 addict like myself! THANK YOU HAPPY HARRY#2!!!"
