fresh tomato taste and off-the-vine aroma. Why? We make it with tomato water

* Tomato Water:
In a blender or food processor, purée tomatoes, basil, and salt.
Line a glass or ceramic bowl with 2 layers of cheesecloth. Pour purée into
bowl. Gather ends of cheesecloth and tie tightly with enough string to create a

to drip into bowl for 8-12 hours. (At some point, you may have to squeeze to
release juices if not producing enough liquid.) Remove beet slice. Makes enough
tomato water for about 6 drinks.
