How to Make Tomato Juice from Tomato Sauce? Making tomato juice from canned tomato sauce is a great way to use the vegetables in your pantry and add more vegetables to your diet.
Simply pour the contents of the can into a pot and simmer on low heat until it reaches desired consistency. You can also make tomato juice from fresh tomatoes if you prefer, but canned tomatoes will give you the added benefit of already being peeled and diced, so all you have to do is open the can and start cooking!
Either way, having some tomato juice in your fridge will allow you to sneak in an extra serving of vegetables at breakfast, lunch or dinner!
How to Make Tomato Juice from Tomato Sauce:
A large saucepan or stockpot. 1 cup of tomato sauce. Two sliced lemons (optional). A handful of basil leaves (optional). A quarter teaspoon of salt, pepper, and sugar (optional). Filtered water for boiling.
If you’re making tomato juice on a stovetop, start by boiling one cup of water for every three pounds of tomatoes. For example, if you want to make five cups of juice, boil 15 cups of water and add it slowly as needed throughout the juicing process.
If you prefer an electric juicer, follow that product’s specific instructions. Either way, put your tomatoes in first, so they’re not touching cold metal or a plate that could heat up and burn your tomatoes.
Then add enough water or other liquid (such as apple cider vinegar), so it covers all of your tomatoes completely. Start with small amounts and add more if necessary—the mixture should be slightly soupy when done but not necessarily drippy-wet.
Store canned tomato sauce in a cool, dry place. Don’t refrigerate it. The acidity of tomatoes makes them non-perishable when canned.
You should be able to use up your canned tomato sauce within 2 years, but some of its flavours may change over time. It might taste a little less fresh and flavorful than it did when you first opened it.
Fresh tomato juice can be made in a flash, but if you’re making large batches for serving with meals, keep a few safety precautions in mind. Store homemade tomato juice in sealed containers and refrigerate.
Keep away from heat since high temperatures will diminish nutrients and enhance oxidation—plus, hot tomato juice is unpleasant! Use your homemade tomato juice within one week or freeze it for up to three months.
Cooked tomatoes are also high in lycopene, which has antioxidant properties that may help lower the risk of cancer and heart disease.
How to Make Tomato Juice from Tomato Sauce? Although you will come up with your own variation over time, this is a great basic recipe to start with.
Once you have crafted your own tomato juice/sauce, it can be used in all sorts of recipes (sandwiches, dressings, etc…).
There are also tons of ways to store your canned goods – for example, canning jars that seal the contents and keep them fresh for quite some time – so enjoy the fruits of your labour!
