If you're going to make apple juice, it is best to prepare enough for you to keep at home and enjoy whenever you want it. Therefore, we recommend buying 19 kg of apples for a total of 4 liters.
The first thing to consider when making apple juice, is that the more sweet the apple variety you choose is, you'll add less sugar during preparation. If you do not like very sweet apple juice, choose your prefered variety.
To store the apple juice at home, because it is not pasteurized, it is necessary keep it in glass containers. Ideally, heat the packages in water for ten minutes before preparing the juice, making sure the water never reaches boiling point. After heating them, wash them with soap and water and sterilise them. Keep them hot to prevent breakage when taking the juice. In these containers your juice can last up to 10 months.
Once you have sterilised the containers, it is time to wash and cut the apples to make the juice. Thoroughly wash your apples to remove any residue or natural contamination, cut them into medium pieces, remove the core and seeds, but DO NOT remove the skin.
Place a pot with filtered water over the heat, add the apple pieces and put them over a high heat. When the water begins to boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the apples are tender.
Line a colander with gauze and place it on a very large pot or container. Filter all the juice into the pot and remove the residue left in the strainer. Pour the apple juice into a pot filter and heat over low heat for eight minutes. Then, with the help of a funnel, fill the container with the juice.
When you have all your containers filled with juice, close them and put them to boil in a pot of boiling water. Leave it there for 10 minutes. Then keep the bottles at room temperature and once they have cooled you can keep them in the fridge or keep them on a shelf.
