    A basic recipe for V-8. Shake well before using.

    7 quarts 1¼ hours 15 min prep

    15 lbs ripe tomatoes, chopped (you want 8 quarts chopped)

    1 large bell pepper, chopped fine

    2 large onions, chopped fine

    1 1/2 cups diced celery

    2 bay leaves

    12 fresh basil leaves or 2 teaspoons dried basil

    2 teaspoons prepared horseradish

    1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

    3 teaspoons sugar

    2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

    1/2 cup lemon juice

    Place all ingredients, except lemon juice, in a large stainless pot. Bring to a boil then simmer for 30 minutes-all veg should be soft.

    Press veg through a fine sieve or food mill.

    Return juice to pot, stir in lemon juice and bring to a boil.

    Pour into clean hot jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Process for 35 minutes at altitudes up to 1000 feet.

    Go to the market and look at a can of V-8. By law, ingredients are listed in order from most prominent to least prominent.

    Copy the 8 veggies you need. Buy the necessary veggies. wash and clean. Then process the veggies in a food blender or food processor.

    I never went to the expense or trouble of making my own veggie cocktail, but I don't think it would be that difficult to make.

    Thanks for asking your Q! I enjoyed taking the time to answer it!
