When Life gives you Lemons – You make Lemonade… SO when Life give you Tomatoes, you make Tomato Juice! We have been enjoying our garden fresh tomatoes for more than a month. I am getting to a point that I am sick and tired of chopping to make bruschetta and tomato salad and salsa though. It is time to give my blender a work-out to help ‘deal with’ my tomatoes! We loved Habanero Tomato Soup last week and since my Bloody Mary loving Grandma was home from her trip & coming to visit I had no other option but tomato juice!
The flavor of this juice was wholesome & pretty good (mom was not a fan of it). I’m not sure what I would & should change but I know that I want to experiment some more [next year probably]… any suggestions!?
“Raw” Bloody Mary Mix
roughly based on Our Share of the Harvest
(make about 1 quart)
- 2 pounds tomatoes, washed, cored and halved
- 1 yellow onion, quartered
- 1- 2 celery stalks
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
- 1-2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
Throw all ingredients in the blender – blend until smooth. Taste, adjust as needed. Refrigerate for a few hours (or overnight +) to let all of the flavors meld.
Serve with some Habanero Infused Vodka and a stalk of celery. Enjoy responsibly!
And I leave you with this, Today’s Question of the Day… Tomatoes are a Fruit, Lemons are a Fruit… what is your favorite “Fruit Juice”?
