Homemade Citrus Soda Pop

Our good friend Nancy sent along the following recipe. She said she found it in Backwoods Home Magazine but that she has made it many times and is what they really like.
By the way I did make a batch of tomato juice once with my Vita-Mix using the skin and seeds and we did not care for the flavor of it at all. Just thought I'd let you know my experience :)
Here's the recipe:
22 lbs tomatoes. ( I figured this to be a 5 gallon bucket full of tomatoes)
2 qt. celery chopped
2 beets chopped
3/4 cup carrots chopped
3/4 cup onion, chopped
3/4 green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped parsley.
bottled lemon juice
salt-1 tsp per quart
Wash and core tomatoes, cut into quarters. ( You don't need to core if you have a Victorio Strainer.) Chop all vegetables. Add tomatoes and vegetables in a large kettle. Slowly bring to a simmer and simmer 20 minutes, stirring to prevent sticking. Mash the vegetables as they begin to soften. Run the mix through a food mill, (I have a Victorio Strainer). Put in jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Add salt to each quart and 2 TB bottled lemon juice to each quart. Process quarts in boiling water bath for 40 minutes or pressure can at 10 pounds for 15 minutes. ( I prefer to pressure can.)
