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!
