READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
SERVES: 20-24
YIELD: 5 quarts




  • Cook tomatoes, celery, carrots, onion, green peppers, garlic, bay leaf, and parsley in a large pot until mushy, approximately 30-45 minutes.
  • Remove the bay leaf.
  • Working in batches, place the vegetable mixture into a blender and puree.
  • Using a spatula, press each pureed batch through a fine sieve to remove any extra seeds.
  • 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).
  • Heat this to a boil.
  • Pour into clean quart jars and add prepared lids.
  • Process in a boiling water canner for 40 minutes.
