Homemade Apple Juice Recipe

Creating your own apple juice at home is a delightful and healthy way to enjoy the natural flavors of apples. This simple recipe allows you to make fresh juice without the need for any special juicing equipment. Plus, you can turn the leftover apple mush into delicious applesauce! Here's how to make it:


  • 18 apples
  • Cinnamon (optional, to taste)
  • Sugar (optional, to taste)


  1. Prepare the Apples:

    • Wash and core the apples to remove seeds.
    • Cut the apples into slices. Peeling is not necessary.
  2. Cook the Apples:

    • Place the apple slices in a large pot.
    • Add just enough water to cover the apples. Be cautious not to add too much to avoid diluting the juice too much.
    • Boil the apples slowly for about 20-25 minutes, or until they are very soft.
  3. Strain the Juice:

    • Set up a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Line the strainer with a coffee filter or cheesecloth.
    • Ladle the hot apple mixture into the strainer.
    • Gently mash the apples to extract the juice. The liquid will collect in the bowl, leaving the apple mush in the strainer.
    • Continue this process until all your juice is strained.
  4. Flavor Adjustment:

    • Once the juice has cooled a bit, taste it.
    • Add sugar or cinnamon to suit your preference. If the juice is too strong, dilute it by adding water gradually.
  5. Make Applesauce:

    • Puree the leftover apple mush.
    • Add a bit of sugar and cinnamon to taste for homemade applesauce.
  6. Storage:

    • Store the apple juice in the refrigerator.
    • Remember, homemade juice lacks preservatives, so consume it within a week.


  • Apple Variety: Use a mix of different types of apples for a more complex flavor profile.
  • Sugar and Cinnamon: Adjust these according to the sweetness and flavor of the apples used.
  • Serving: Serve chilled for a refreshing drink.

Enjoy your homemade apple juice and the bonus of tasty applesauce – a perfect example of no-waste cooking!
