Spicy V8 Juice

Spicy V8 Juice

8 quarts water
4 pounds homegrown tomatoes, chopped
1 bunch celery, chopped
8 green jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 cup vinegar
3 bay leaves
2 Tbs oregano
1 large onion, chopped
1 head garlic, pressed
4 Tbs salt
4 Tbs sugar
another pound of tomatoes
1 green pepper
5 sweet banana peppers
a small handful of flat leaf parsley
about 10 basil leaves, rolled & chopped
5 or 6 sprigs of thyme
3 sage leaves

In a large pot, combine all ingredients except the sugar, bring to a boil, and cook at a steady boil for 2 hours. Remove from heat and strain through a colonder or food mill, making sure to express all the liquid you can. Discard the pulp, return the liquid to the pot, and boil for another couple of hours, or until the liquid is reduced to roughly three quarts. Add four tablespoons of sugar, remove from heat, stir, and let cool.
