In the morning, do you enjoy your little fruit juice or freshly squeezed orange juice? How about learning how to make your own apple juice? Thanks to this alternative, you will enjoy the benefits of the fruit without the sugar added by most manufacturers.
Fine Dining Lovers shows how to make apple juice in five different ways.
HOW TO MAKE APPLE JUICE WITH A JUICER
To make homemade apple juice, the easiest way is to have a juicer. First of all, be aware that you do not need to peel apples which is a good thing since most nutrients are found in the skin of the fruit. However, remember to wash them well.
For the rest, making an apple juice in the juicer is a breeze. Simply insert your whole fruit or roughly cut into quarters, turn on the appliance and use the pusher to properly recover the juice of the whole apple. No need to sort the seeds or dry pulp, the device does it for you.
The only drawback is that the juicer slightly heats foods, which then tend to lose a small portion of their nutrients. In addition, a juicer lets air through, which oxidizes the fruit. It is therefore strongly recommended to drink apple juice directly after its extraction.
HOW TO MAKE APPLE JUICE WITH A JUICE EXTRACTOR
Another way to make a homemade apple juice very easily is to use a juice extractor. Unlike a traditional juicer, the extractor doesn't use heat. Instead, it cold presses the fruit slowly which allows it to preserve all of its the nutrients.
For the rest, the process is just as simple: just place the pieces of fruit in the extractor and let the machine do the rest.
HOW TO MAKE APPLE JUICE WITH A BLENDER
If you do not have a juicer or juice extractor at home, you can still make apple juice with a blender. However, be aware that the blender crushes the fibers and that the texture will be more like a smoothie than a clear juice, unless you pass the liquor through a fine mesh strainer.
To make apple juice in the blender, start by peeling and scooping the apples, cut them and process them in the blender.
HOW TO MAKE APPLE JUICE WITHOUT A MACHINE
If you do not have a juicer or blender at home, do not panic! It is quite possible to make homemade apple juice anyway. For this, peel and deseed the apples, cut them into pieces and cook them in a saucepan, a little like a compote.
Then, just strain the compote and save the clear juice. However, with cooking, the apples will have lost all their nutritional values.
Alternatively, here is a no-cook method you can try:
