Recipe: Fresh, Homemade Apple Juice

My mother had a creative way of using the apple cores and peels leftover from making apple pie: to make homemade apple juice. Store-bought apple juice is tasty, but it has a strong, distinct flavor with almost a hint of bitterness. To those with sensitive palates, it can be a little strong at times. Homemade juice, however, tastes surprisingly different as it is lighter and pleasantly sweet without the kick. Besides using a juicer, this is a super-easy way of making apple juice.

Fresh, Homemade Apple Juice Ingredients

  • 3 peels and cores from red apples - seeds removed

  • 5 cups water

  • cup white sugar

How to Make Fresh, Homemade Apple Juice

  1. Place the peelings and cores into a saucepan, and stir in the water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the water picks up the apple flavor and color, about 30 minutes. Drain the apple juice, discarding solid pieces, and stir in the sugar until dissolved. Allow to cool before drinking.

Fresh, Homemade Apple Juice Reviews

  • Hmm, I did not care for this. I can see me loving something like this, if it was Depression Era time. It honestly, tasted like what it was water, sugar, and tart apple peels. Making homemade apple juice or cider can be done very easily with a small counter top juicer. It tastes so much better than the store if you have not tried it. Plus, it is just pure apples. The whole point of apple juice, if it is good, is it doesnt need any sugar. I just thought I would test this recipe because I had some peels and apple cores from an apple tart recipe. I guess my apple scraps will continue to go into the compost pile as usual.

  • Love this recipe...i did adjust it alittle however. I used the whole apple but cored it. boiled for an hour and took some advice and let it soak in the fidge over night..I did add 1/3 cup of cugar because my apples werent that sweet. My 5 month old loves it Thanks very much

  • This is a great idea to use up the bits you would otherwise waste and I suspect that the apple variety used makes a huge difference, but I used the cores and peels from 4 pink lady apples in 4 cups of water and it tasted quite insipid after an hour of simmering and definitely didnt need any sugar. I ended up leaving the pot to sit overnight and it was like slightly diluted juice in the morning. Ill make this again, but with a higher ratio of peel to water for a really appple-ey flavour.

  • The concept of this recipe is great, especially because I hate waste and it gives me an opportunity to use up all the scraps from apple pies, etc BUT we did find it to be a bit sweet so what I did was add some lemon juice to bring down that sweetness a bit. Of course that may have just been because of the apples I was using (red delicious) and will vary from apple to apple and time of the year. Ours also got a much rosier color than that of the one displayed in the picture which was very pretty in our pitcher at our fall party. ;) Hope this helps

  • The juice was very good but i boiled a whole apple first.

  • Surprisingly good

  • I made this & it was absolutely amazing I used the peels & deseeded cores from 4 Suncrisps (yellow) & 2 Honeycrisps (red) apples. I did the 5 cups of water & reduced the sugar to about 1/4 cup (as these apples tend to be very sweet already). I cooked the peels & cores on high for about 45 mins & then strained everything from the juice several times in order to get the juice as pure as possible. Then I added the sugar and mixed until dissolved & let it sit for about 10-15 minutes to cool. I then poured over ice & served it to my family who all loved it as much as I did We do the whole apple picking thing every year as a family & I make homemade applesauce & pies & usually throw all the cores & peels away....well no more Going forward I will be using them to make this delicious apple juice for my family ????

  • This is how to make apple juice and I love apple juice and I would like to try it with NO sugar because I hate sugar.

  • I made mine a bit different than this recipie called for. I just cut all my little apples up and threw them into a boiling pot of water. I used little apples my mother in law gave me from her apple trees. Unfortunately It took much longer to boil than expected, and it only made a little bit of actual juice. Wasnt really worth the whole Hassel haha. But it was fun to try out. I diddnt add any surgar to mine either. luckily my little batch was pretty sweet without surgar.

  • This is excellent I used green apples and the sour sweet taste is amazing. I used cores and skin and its Def very flavorful not bland at all but I boiled it for 45 min

  • Apple juice is not only delicious; it also offers you a great selection of different health benefits. Green apple juice benefits have been discussed in various texts however the fact remains that many of us dont add these to the daily diets as directed. Really fresh kind of a juice, the green elements causes it to be feeling like a salad juice, very good like a morning juice.

  • I loved it Kids loved it The only things I changed: 1) I lowered amount of sugar which I do with store bought juice by watering it down anyway. Kids are used to not so sweet juice. 2) I drained (filtered) the grainy apple and sugar particles. This made the juice I served the kids completely liquid free of any bits of anything. It comes out white at first, but if you let it sit , it eventually gets darker in color due to oxygenation, just like a normal apple would. Still delicious Thank you for the recipe

  • I made this for my son. He loved it

  • Made same recipe and its delicious

  • My child and grandson to be enjoyed it

  • Great recipe I modified it to suit me and it was perfect. I boiled for 45min 5 bruised apples that fell on the ground from my tree. added half the sugar and it was great. my whole family loved it. I am making it again the next morning and sharing on fb. Thank u for sharing

  • Nice it is really tasty juice

Truth hurts! Nothing is perfect, life is messy. Relationship are complex. Outcomes are uncertain, people are irrational.
