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 doesn't 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 didn't need any sugar. I ended up leaving the pot to sit overnight and it was like slightly diluted juice in the morning. I'll 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!
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! ????
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 don t 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.
