Here at HelloFresh, we love taking the most common, store-bought foods and putting a homemade spin on them — peanut butter, almond milk, hummus, granola bars. You name it, we’ve probably tried tinkering with it in the test kitchen.

Which brings us to our latest kitchen project… apple juice.

Because WHO KNEW it was as easy as boiling, straining, and — yeah, that about covers it.

So whether you’re still working your way through that apple picking haul, or just in the mood for something refreshingly autumnal, this recipe is for you.

How to make apple juice

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 16-18 Apples
  • Honey and lemon juice, optional

Here’s what you’ll do:

1. Wash and core apples, then cut into slices (no need to peel).

2. Add slices to a large pot with just enough water to cover them.

3. Bring apples to a boil and let cook until they’re soft, about 25 minutes.

4. Spoon mixture through a cheesecloth or fine-meshed strainer.*

5. Mix in optional honey and lemon juice, then simmer again 15-20 minutes.

6. Taste and adjust with extra water if too concentrated in flavor.

7. Store in a tightly sealed mason jar in the fridge for up to one week.

*Don’t toss out the apple “mush!” It can easily be turned into applesauce by pureeing with a touch of cinnamon.

You’re not an apple aficionado until you’re treated yourself to an apple-forward breakfast, brunch, lunch, cocktail, dinner, AND dessert. Challenge, accepted.
