A great homemade V8 Juice

I found this recipe on Farmgirl Fare (the link is in the list of blogs on the right of this blog).  It is wonderful and the smell that fills the house as it is simmering is good too!

6 pounds of tomatoes
2 cups chopped onion
2 1/2 cups chopped celery
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cumin
6 drops of Tabasco sauce
a splash or two of Worcestershire
pepper to taste

You need a large pot to cook this in.  Just dump everything in and let it simmer for 40 minutes.  Use a hand blender or sieve to mix it after cooking.  Chill and serve.  This will last a week in the refrigerator.

I used my hand blender to blend it.

I have a juicer which I use often to mix fruit and vegetable drinks.  This is the first recipe for juice that I've seen that calls for cooking it first.
