HOMEMADE TOMATO JUICE (didn't give) 8-23-08 Top of page

Some tomatoes are sweeter than others, depending on their ripeness and the variety of tomato. Use the ripest tomatoes you can. Added sugar will balance the natural acidity of the tomatoes, use more or less to taste. Tabasco hot sauce is also to taste, depending on your desired level of spiciness.

3 pounds very ripe garden tomatoes, cored, roughly chopped
1 1/4 cups chopped celery with leaves
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 tbsps. sugar (to taste)
1 tsp. salt
Pinch black pepper
A couple shakes of Tabasco sauce, about 6-8 drops (to taste)

Put all ingredients into a large non-reactive pot (use stainless steel, not aluminum). Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until mixture is completely soupy, about 25 minutes. Force mixture through a sieve, chinoise, or food mill. Cool completely. Store covered and chilled. Will last for about 1 week in the refrigerator. Makes about 1 quart.


Wash, core, quarter, and cook tomatoes until soft. Add water if tomatoes are not juicy enough. Run through colander or sieve. Pour hot juice into jars and add 1 tsp. salt to each jar.

5 cups blueberries
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. lemon peel
dash salt
2 tsps. lemon juice
1 cup sugar

Make a 2 crust pie and mix dry ingredients with blueberries. Pour into crust. Bake at 425 for 15 mins, then reduce to 350 for 35-40 minutes. Can use peaches instead.

Tips, hints and helps: When making tomato soup, put the tomatoes into the milk and the milk won't curdle. "Red into white and you'll never be blue." You can also add baking soda or flour to the tomatoes to reduce the acidity. If you add baking soda, it will remove the vitamin C content of the tomatoes.(jan/feb78pg3) 8-23-08

Tips, hints and helps: Wash, core and quarter tomatoes. Put tomatoes in a blender and blend until liquid. Can also put tomatoes, onions, peppers and whatever else you want and cook it, then put it into a blender for juice. 8-23-08
