I found a recipe for bottled Sloppy Joe Sauce and decided that was the perfect solution to my problem of having too many frozen tomatoes in my freezer.

However, the recipe calls for 5 quarts of Tomato Juice. I didn’t have tomato juice, I had tomatoes!

So began my journey to turn my frozen tomatoes into Tomato Juice into Sloppy Joe Sauce. Finding a juice recipe was quite easy, but finding one that sounded really good? That was a bit more difficult. After analyzing many options, I decided to write my own recipe for the Tomato Juice.

How to make Tomato Juice Sauce:

16 cups peeled and chopped tomatoes
2 cups onions
1 cup celery
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon garlic
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
15 ‚Äď 20 drops hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all ingredients in a large, stainless steel pot. Simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the vegetables are well cooked and tender. Carefully blend small batches in a blender or put through a food mill.

Because my tomatoes were frozen, they had not been skinned or cored. This made my juice quite thick, almost more sauce-like. In fact, next time I think I will try using it as a tomato sauce!

The flavor was just right and in the end I had 17 pints of Sloppy Joe Sauce.

I am feeling much more prepared for summer time with this quick fix pantry staple on the shelf!

    I can’t wait to try this. My husband got a little out of control and planted almost 200 tomato plants. I’m making a list of all the recipes I need to make with the tomatoes. This one is now on my to-do list. Thanks.

    So to use this you just add a pound of browned ground beef to it, simmer for about 10 minutes and serve on buns?

    Yes, just add some ground beef! Last week I poured a bottle over some frozen meatballs, added some fresh mozzarella cheese for a delicious meatball sandwich.
