Juice extracted from pressing apples. Typically sweet and golden in color. Filtered juice is clear, whereas the unfiltered juice oxidizes and turns an opaque brown. If left unpasteurized, naturally occuring yeast from the apples will cause the juice to ferment causing it to become carbonated and contain alcohol, this is usually called "Hard Cider."
Clear amber liquid, sometimes cloudy.
Selecting and Buying
Preparation and Use
To make fresh apple juice at home;
Push a lemon through your juicer right before you begin juicing your apple. Leave the peel on the apple. The apple peel carries some of its nutritional value.
Simply push the apples through the juicer and enjoy.
Conserving and Storing
* Store in cool, dry area.
* Discard all juice from cans that are leaking, rusting, bulging or severely dented.
* Pantry storage time shown is for best quality only — after that, the juice's texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, it will still be safe to consume if it has remained unopened and been stored properly.
* Freeze in airtight glass or plastic container and leave at least 1/2 inch headspace at the top, as juice will expand when frozen.
* Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
