Homemade Tomato Juice

Homemade Tomato Juice: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I went to make a recipe the other day and realized it called for tomato juice and somehow that ingredient did not make it on my grocery list. Not sure how that happened, but now I had a mission to find a substitute. As I was looking for a solution, I was hoping to find a good one, because whenever a recipe calls for tomato juice it is usually a smaller amount than you can buy at the store and I always have a problem using up the rest.

In my search for a substitute I came across a recipe for making tomato juice. I was not expecting to find a way to make it at home, but that would be better than a substitute. To make things even better, the recipe called for ingredients I had in the pantry. Plus it only called for 2 ingredients.

In a recipe, this homemade tomato juice worked perfect. As for drinking this tomato juice, I can not tell you how it tasted or compared to the store bought, since I do not like drinking tomato juice. 

To make this homemade tomato juice you need one can tomato paste to four cans water. So if you use a 6 ounce can of tomato paste, then fill the can up 4 times with water. If you use a 12 ounce can of tomato paste, then fill the can up 4 times with water. Then stir very well and then you will have tomato juice.
