Suitable for cocktails or seasonings

I’m looking through the coverless little booklet received free with an Electrolux refrigerator, maybe in the 50’s or 60’s, I’ll never know. Maybe it was my mum’s, or my mother-in-law’s, again I’ll never know. Today we buy tomato juice in cartons or bottles, we’d never think of making our own… but maybe if we have a glut of tomatoes this summer, maybe this is a recipe I should try – as the booklet says, it’s also suitable for cocktails or seasonings!

Tomato juice

  • 1 pound of tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 tablespoonful of vinegar
  • 1 teaspoonful of Worcester sauce
  • 1 dessertspoonful of finely chopped onion
  • 1 dessertspoonful of sugar
  • pepper and salt to taste
  1. very gently simmer the tomatoes in a covered saucepan until tender
  2. press through a strainer
  3. mix the pulp with the rest of the ingredients
  4. keep in the refrigerator until ready for use

I’m not sure I’d want finely chopped onion in my tomato juice somehow!
