I am fortunate enough to have an apple orchard in my garden so that I can get great apples to eat fresh, put in crumbles, dry, bake etc, but there are still far too many for me so what can I do with them? Make the best apple juice in the the world. I can’t take credit for it being brilliant; that’s thanks to nature, but I do know how to get it out of the apples. So if you want to know how to make apple juice, you’ve come to the right place.
Get a load of apples
Shred the apples
Squeeze out the juice
Doesn’t it look great?
Presuming you have more apple juice than you can drink, you can either freeze it or pasteurise it. To freeze it, I put freezer bags inside old drink cartons (start saving them now) and fill them up with juice. The frozen apple juice thaws out to taste virtually the same as the fresh juice. It just depends on how much space you have in your freezer…
Last year I bought a pasteurising machine which has worked well. More information on that coming later.
