V-8 Juice (Homemade)

Periodically, I will be posting some recipes for healthy smoothies, juices, foods, etc.  Today's V-8 Juice recipe is fantastic.  I have made it before.  You can pare this down if you don't want this quantity.  Making this is worth it!

10-15 pounds fully ripe tomatoes, chopped
2 cups chopped celery
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced/mashed
1/4 cup sugar or raw honey or Agave nectar
salt to taste
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/3 cup lemon juice
Worcestershire, to taste

(Add a dash or two of Liquid smoke if desired)

Over medium high heat bring the vegetables to a boil and boil gently for about 20 minutes. Periodically, add in all ingredients.  In a covered blender add a portion at a time to process until smooth. Strain and discard pulp. Chill
