"Fabulous! I made this with my garden tomatoes and then canned it. It is perfect in my tomato soup and pasta sauce!"

"This was an awesome no brainer in my book! This juice is excellent. I had been looking for something to make my Bloody Mary's with that was low sodium and what I did find that was low sodium was not really low sodium for me. This fit the bill beyond words and I now have something for my Bloody Mary's and I can control the salt. Excellent flavor! All smiles now!"
