Tomato Juice

Wash, core and quarter 5 pounds of ripe tomatoes.

Place in a large, nonreactive pot over medium heat. Add 1 small red onion, halved, and 1 celery rib with leaves. Cover and cook, stirring often, until tomatoes are soft, about 30 minutes. Cool; discard onion and celery.

Pass tomatoes through a food mill fitted with the fine sieve. Discard solids. Measure juice and return to cleaned pot.

For each 4 cups of tomato juice, season with 1 tsp. sugar, up to 1 tsp. salt and pepper to taste. Stir to dissolve over medium heat. Cool, then chill. Taste for salt. Serve within three days.

Blondie Mary

Saw this recipe in the newspaper

12 medium golden tomatoes
3t white worcestershire sauce
3t green pepper sauce (Tabasco)
4t fine sea salt
2t lime juice
2t lemon juice
1 serrano or jalapeno
1.5t dill fresh chopped
12 oz vodka
lemon cucumber
pickled wax beans

Blanch tomatoes and skin them. Puree in a blender. You should have 7 to 8 cups.

Add wors. sauce, pepper sauce, lime and lemon juice, dill and chili and puree until smooth. strain and set aside.

Mix 1.5 ounces or so of vodka with 8-10 ounces of mix. Garnish with slice of lemon cuke and wax bean.

I see no real reason for adding the cucmber and bean, but, the rest of this recipe sounds pretty good as a base for all manner of odd colored drinks

Mozzarella Martini with Fresh Tomato Consomme

3 - 4 pounds ripe tomatoes, plus 1/2 tomato, cut into 4 wedges
salt and freshly ground pepper
4 fresh mozzarella bocconcini, each 1 inch in diameter
4 cherry tomatoes
About 1-1/2 teaspoons basil-flavored olive oil (optional)
8 large fresh basil leaves, cut into very fine chiffonade

You will need enough tomato water to fill your martini glasses, so measure their capacity, probably something between 5 and 9 ounces.

Chill martini glasses in the freezer, or refrigerate an hour ahead of serving. (A freezer gives a heavy frost.) Peel, seed, and chop 3 to 4 pounds tomatoes. Season lightly with salt and pepper, place in a sieve suspended over a bowl and refrigerate for several hours. As the tomatoes release their juice, it will fall into the bowl, giving you an almost gin-clear liquid with lots of flavor. Season tomato water to taste with salt and pepper and refrigerate until very cold. Reserve tomato pulp for another use.

Halve or quarter the bocconcini if larger than 1 inch in diameter. Thread a tomato wedge, a bocconcini, and a cherry tomato onto each of 4 wooden skewers 4 to 5 inches long. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with basil oil, if desired. Working quickly, divide tomato liquid among chilled martini glasses. Balance skewers on top of glasses, then sprinkle basil chiffonade over skewers. Serve immediately.

It is impossible to give a specific amount for the tomatoes because how much "water" a tomato releases depends on many factors, including the growing season and the variety.

Default Bloody Mary Mix

I'm looking for a good water bath recipe to put up red/pink tomatoes as a Bloody Mary Mix. Would it be ok to put some green when ripe tomatoes in it too?
Thanks
