Tomato Juice Cocktail
2 quarts tomato juice and pulp
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 Tablespoon Salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon thyme
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Wash and cut up (but do not peel) the desired amount of tomatoes. Boil until tomatoes are soft enough to go through a sieve easily. Put through sieve, then measure. For every 2 quarts of juice and pulp, add the above seasonings (except worcestershire). Bring to a boil and cook for 5 to 8 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce - 2 teaspoons for every 2 quarts juice. Pour into hot sterile jars and seal. You do not need to process.
