2In a large pot, pour the entire can of tomato juice. Rinse can out with the water. Place peppers into the pot. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 to 2 hours, until peppers are tender.
3In a large skillet, melt the shortening (butter). Sprinkle in the flour and whisk until smooth. Cook roux until it deepens to a medium brown. Stir frequently so it doesn't
