Equipment needed to make fresh apple juice includes a knife, a pot for boiling the apples, a colander or cheese cloth for straining out the pulp, and a container for storing the juice. An apple corer or steam juicer are optional tools.
A quick and easy way to make apple juice involves cutting a batch of apples into evenly sized slices and placing them into a large pot. Add enough water to cover the apple slices and boil the apples until tender and pulpy. Place a colander, sieve or piece of cheesecloth over the mouth of the intended storage container, and slowly pour the apple and juice mixture through the strainer into the container.
