Falling In Love With Apple Juice

The smell of apple cider & apple crisp fill the kitchen as your mouth waters for just one taste. Fall is my favorite season as I get to harvest all that I have grown. Apple juice, cider, and apple crisp are a few of my favorite things to make! We have a apple orchard that has an endless supply of apples so I decided to make my own apple juice! Here is my quick step by step over view of how i did it.

Equipment used:

Apple Crusher

Apple Press


knife and cutting board

Cheese cloth and fine mesh strainer

Canning Jars

Water Bath Canner

Homemade Raw Apple Juice



All you need is your apples for this!

Step 1: Cut apples into halves and place into crusher and crush all your apples.

Step 2: As you place your crushed apples into your press jucie will start to run out right away so make sure to have a large pot under neath to catch it.

Step 3: Apple pressure to your press, depending on what kind you have and press/ crank the blocks till you can't anymore.

Step 4: Collect all juice and strain through a mesh strainer and cheese cloth to remove chunks and debris.

Step 5: Place pot onto your stove and heat to 190 degrees but not hottter than that!

Step 6: If you do not want to can the juice, go ahead and enjoy it and keep it in your fridge for about a week.

Step 7: If you want to preserve your apple juice you can freeze it in freezer safe containers or can it using a water bath canner. Make sure your jars are clean and pour your juice in. Once you have your jars in the canner, process for 10 minutes.

Step 8: Enjoy your homemade apple juice1 Add some cinnamon or clove to some juice and heat up for a lovely warm fall drink!
