This is an old family recipe. Great when you have lots of tomatoes to can! Very yummy with or without alcohol!

ingredients

directions

  • 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.

    Can I use canned tomatoes instead of fresh ones?

    Could I use unripe, green tomato with this recipe? Would any seasonings be tweaked?

    I made the 1st batch as recipe is written. Too sweet for my taste but definitely onto something. 2nd batch I eliminated the sugar & replaced about 1/2 of the peppers with jalapenos. Also added waaaay more Tabasco to make it to my liking. Another tip to make the process less labor intensive, in my opinion, was if you have a juicer, juice your tomatoes. Simmer the juice down for at least 45 minutes then add the rest of the veggies. Once soft, use an immersion blender. This will eliminate the steps of placing in a blender then straining it. Really am enjoying this recipe!

    Last recipe I tried was really sweet and too runny. Did you use Roma or other tomatoes? I’ll try this recipe this year and report back

    I made this yesterday and it has a great mix of flavors. But I increased the spices and added about 1/3 cup jalepeno pepper juice and dill pickle juice. Not dissing the recipe, it is just my personal tastes. An easy recipe to make!
