Tomato Juice from Tomato Paste

- 1 can tomato paste
- 4 cans of tap water
Use any size can of tomato paste. Usually they come in 12-oz or 6-oz sizes. Open the can and scrape the thick concentrated tomato paste into a large jar or juice pitcher. Fill the can with water 4 times, and pour the water in with the tomato paste. Stir it up really well.
It will be unsalted, which I believe makes it taste fresher, but you may add salt to taste if you like. Some folks like to add a little Hot Sauce or Worcestershire Sauce for flavor. Personally, I like it well chilled and straight from the fridge. It has a tangy refreshing flavor which reminds me of summertime tomato harvesting.
Use it anywhere you would regular canned tomato juice. Here is a substitute which costs less than a third of it’s commercial counterpart, and actually tastes ten times better. Being thrifty pays off in flavor, health and savings.
