Ever desired to create new, homemade apple juice in your home with a blender? Surprise! It is completely simple and the ideal way to toast the autumn season.
Yield: 1 servings (420 ml)
Total Time: 16 Minutes
2 Apple Juice Ingredients
- Cinnamon (optional)
- Sugar (optional)
- 4 (600 g) apples, cored, halved
- ¼ cup (60 ml) cold water
Step By Step To Make Apple Juice With A Blender
We’ll start by washing and then grating the apples to remove the seeds. Cut apples into small slices. There is no need to peel an apple if you like the taste.
Put the apples in the blender then add enough water to cover the apples. If too much water is added, the juice will be diluted. This juice may be a bit strong, but diluting the juice with more water will be much easier to drink instead of trying to make the flavor stronger.
Slowly boil the apple for about 20-25 minutes or until the apple is soft. Put a coffee filter or a cheesecloth into your fine mesh filter and place it on top of a bowl.
Slowly scoop the hot juice/apple mixture into a fine-mesh sieve and gently mash the apples. The juice will be filtered through the bottom into your bowl while the apple pulp will be left behind. Place the pasta in a separate bowl for later use. Repeat this process until all of your juice is in the bowl.
Taste the juice after it cools a bit. You can add sugar or cinnamon, depending on your preference. Again, if the taste is too strong, you can add water bit by bit to lower the concentration of the juice.
The apple powder you obtained can be easily turned into apple sauce by pureeing it and adding a little sugar and cinnamon to flavor it.
Remember that your homemade apple juice doesn’t have any preservatives, so make sure to refrigerate and use within a week!
More About Apple Juice
If you like fresh apple juice but do not have enough time to trek out into an orchard this autumn then have we’ve got a hint for you; homemade apple juice is remarkably simple, tastes amazing, and just requires a couple of straightforward actions.
Start using a 5-6 pounds. Now, here is an essential hint: the apples that you select will considerably influence the flavor of your juice. Thus, we recommend beginning with a naturally sweet apple such as Fuji, Gala or even Red Delicious. Even better, combine several varieties of apples to receive a more intricate taste.
Additional items you’ll want:
Large stew pot Big bowl Nice mesh strainer Bowl strainer matches over (useful if it’s a handle) sterile jar or jar and lid for keeping the juice Filter (coffee filter or cheesecloth) Ladle Big wooden spoon
First, wash and core the apples to eliminate the seeds (we are huge fans of employing an economical apple slicer to conserve time on this measure ). Notice: quitting your peels will influence the colour of your own juice and might give it a pink hue, based upon your apple number. Suggestion: it is a whole lot easier to add water after in case your closing infusion is too strong tasting.
Gradually boil the apples for 20-25 minutes until the apples are extremely soft. Put a coffee filter or cheesecloth on your fine mesh strainer and set over a bowl. It will help if your bowl includes a handle as it is time to pour into a container, but it is not vital.
Slowly ladle the apple-water mix into the fine mesh strainer and lightly mash the apples. The juice will filter into your jar leaving the apple cider from the sieve. But do not throw off the mush! Save it for after in a different bowl. Keep repeating this procedure until all your juice is from the jar.
When the juice has chilled, go right ahead and taste it. This is the place you can adjust the sweetness to your own taste by adding extra sugars (or the sweetener of your choice). Feel free to add a little cinnamon also in the event that you would like to spice this up a little. If the juice tastes too powerful you may add a little bit of water to dilute it marginally.
That leftover apple cider you stored? Switch it into applesauce with the addition of sugar and cinnamon to taste, pureeing into the consistency you want, and presto: homemade applesauce
All that is left to do is to enjoy the fruits. Of your own labor.
