The tomatoes are peeled, quartered, canned, and waiting for the water to boil. What do I do with that leftover juice/pulp? Here's a pretty good idea, and it will be done before the 40 minutes' processing time is over.

Step 1: Start with the juice

After filling six pint jars with fresh tomatoes and topping them off with juice, I'm left with just less than a quart of beautiful, fresh tomato juice that I don't want to throw out. I put it on medium high heat and start to boil it. Maintain a simmer throughout the mixing of ingredients. 
Num! And a stick of celery and a dash o' pepper... Happy new year!
This sounds so interesting! lol... don't hate me, but I'd thin it back down with TJ and add a healthy dose of vodka! Just sayin'. ;-)
This looks very tasty!
To be completely honest, I think anything mixed with cream cheese is tasty. But this base is so versatile! The ginger really sets it apart.
Tasty! What do you usually eat it with, crackers?
Yep--or sliced carrots or celery. And that base is good with so many things!
