Homemade Apple Juice
Homemade apple juice is a treat in our home. Learn how to make apple juice using the delicious apples from your orchard.
Don’t let anything go to waste. We have a neighbor who couldn’t use all the apples growing on their apple trees. They let us pick the excess, and we made gallons and gallons of yummy juice.
Make the determination to use everything the Lord gives you. You’ll be surprised and grateful for the miracles as you work on gathering and storing your food.
Two Ways to Make Homemade Apple Juice:
Turning Apple Cider into Apple Juice
Apple juice is apple liquid that has been processed. Apple cider is unprocessed apple liquid. If you have access to some kind of apple press, extracting the cider from the apples goes pretty fast. But to preserve apple cider you need to freeze it.
Here are two reasons for processing your apple cider instead of freezing it: #1 you don’t have the freezer room, or #2 you don’t want to store too much juice in the freezer in case the electricity goes out.
You can process your apple cider in a boiling water canner, and it will become apple juice. Homemade apple juice stores well on the shelf.

Equipment and Supplies
Jars & Lids
- Wash your jars and lids with hot soapy water. I reuse my lids that are in good condition see
Canning Jars, Lids, & Rings.
- Cut your apples into quarters. Don’t worry about taking out the core of the apple. Cut out any rotten spots or bug holes. Making apple juice is a great way to use up those apples that are less than perfect.
