Does your family enjoy fresh homemade juice? Here is a delicious juice which taste like V8 juice. This is called V8 Juice. There are only seven ingredients. We process this V8 Juice in a water bath process. Honestly a couple of jars never get processed. They are consumed before being put in the water bath. Fresh vegetables, no preservatives.

Doesn’t get any better tasting or healthier.

Needed: Strainer, large bowl, non-reactive pot (glass, enamel or stainless steel), potato masher.
