When you grind all the tomatoes, pour it into a larger pot and turn the stove on medium power (if you have, say, 9 divisions, homemade tomato juice without preservatives, should let it boil 4). When it’s boiling, then reduce a temperature and let it cook. Cook while the excess water evaporates, for about 1 hour. At the end of cooking, add salt to taste.

Then seal the bottle, and cover them with a blanket. It is important that domestic tomato juice slowly cooled. If he stays warm as long as possible, and that naturally cools. When the bottles are completely cool, store them in a cool, dark place for the winter.
