It’s delicious as juice. That’s all well and good but the mess and rigmarole is not worth it if you’re just going to slam dunk the stuff.
When I was a kid my mother used to make tomato juice and it was phenomenal. I really really loved it but so did my father. But there wasn’t really enough of it to just toss back a cup or two at a time. It was too much work so my parents were the ones who got to drink it. I’m not bitter.
So I’ve made 3 batches of sauce so far, and drank the first one entirely. I’ll buy sauce if I need it.
