Learn how to easily make juice from your tomato and pepper garden harvest. Great for drinks and preserving.

When the garden is going INSANE and you have so many tomatoes and peppers, what are you supposed to do with them? Of course you can make as many meals as possible, but you have to preserve them at some point – see Preserving Peppers.

However! They don’t have to only go into meals.

Think outside the box, or perhaps inside the glass. We’re talking Homemade Spicy Tomato Juice!

YES!

You can preserve your juice by freezing or canning it, but it tastes so good, it probably won’t stick around for long. This is a simple recipe, actually. Just roast and process.

It will serve as a base for drink recipes like bloody mary’s or micheladas, or you can just pour a glass for your morning start.

Let’s talk about how we make our own homemade tomato juice, shall we? All you need are tomatoes (and some pepper and garlic to add some spice and flavor).

How to Make Homemade Spicy Tomato Juice – the Recipe Method

First, heat your oven to 350 degrees. Clean and dry your chosen tomatoes and chili peppers. Use only the freshest, ripest tomatoes and peppers for making your own juice.

Next, slice the tomatoes and peppers in half lengthwise and set them onto lightly oiled baking sheets, along with the garlic cloves.

Bake them for 25-30 minutes, or until the pepper skins char.

Remove from heat. Once cooled enough, remove the skins from the tomatoes and peppers. Set them into a food processor.

Squeeze garlic from their skins and into the food processor they go.

Process until mixed well.

Strain the mixture, or better yet, use a food mill like we did. You will get a nice and consistent juice.

      Brittany, this should last a week sealed in the fridge, or a bit longer because of the acidity. You can also freeze it.

    I started doing this with all of my garden tomatoes and some of the peppers and it always turns out wonderfully. Thank you so much for sharing this technique. Godsend!
