Does anyone make their own vegetable or fruit juice and can it? I want to make veggie juice next summer, like V8, and can it. I assume it would be a lot better made from our own fresh tomatoes and carrots and anything else I want to add at the time.

Does anyone do this and what do you put in it? Experiement results, recipes, tips and taste tests would be very helpful.

I have a juicer.

It is one of the things I want a pressure canner for.

I want to make our own apple juice and cider too.

I just posted my favorite recipe that I came up with a few years ago. I hope I didn't already post it in Just Recipes - have the feeling that I did but couldn't find it.....

I have the balance of tomatoes to low acid veggies calculated so that it can be processed in a water bath but I know that you know that adding more low acid veggies will require pressure canning.

My advice, based on my own experiments, is to do what you think will work and keep tweaking until you get what you love. And always WRITE DOWN what you do, how much of what veggie you added, etc. so that when you hit on that great combo you can duplicate it.

I started out. for example, putting in fresh peppers but didn't like it that way. Took a couple of batches and then hit on what I wanted. The experiments made great soup and chili base LOL!

If common sense were truly common, wouldn't there be more evidence of it?

I love to use V-8 as a base for ground beef goulash..yummy!

Sometimes,I live in my own little world, but it's okay because they know me here.

Thank for the advice, Dede! I will probably do that, was looking for a recipe to start with. I will pressure can it, since I am going to be using a lot of carrot in it, as well as tomato. Have to get a canner...
