Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs. very ripe tomatoes, cored and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • ¼ cup onion, chopped
  • ½ cup carrots, chopped
  • 4 sprigs fresh lemony thyme
  • 1 Tbl. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. sriracha or Tabasco hot sauce or to taste
  • 1 tsp. honey or agave nectar
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly cracked pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a non-reactive pot. Simmer over low, uncovered, for about 45 minutes until mixture becomes very soupy. Stir occasionally to help break up the pieces.
  2. Ladle mixture into a blender and purée, working in batches if making a large volume. Once blended, force through a sieve or use a food mill to extract all the pulp. Discard pulp and chill juice completely. Once cooled adjust seasoning to taste.
  3. Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Notes
This recipe is based on the ingredients I had on hand. In the future I will double or triple this recipe so that we have enough juice for several days.
