Secrets to the success of a good apple juice

Golden rule: "The quality of the fruits determines the quality of the juice"

Apples must be ripe but not excessively: they must be firm and rot-free.
Only pick them up a few days before pressing to prevent them from getting damaged.
Mix several varieties to obtain a balanced and tasty juice.
Bring clean fruits freed from all foreign bodies (leaf, grass, earth ...)


      



Steps to make apple juice


  • With 10 kg of apples, we obtain about 5 to 6 liters of juice.
  • Arrived at the workshop, the apples are washed then poured in the crusher to be crushed.
  • This crushed apple is deposited, in successive thin layers, on the press. The juice is extracted by hydraulic pressure.
  • The juice obtained is put to rest in a tank during one night: one gets a decanted juice naturally.
  • The juice is then pasteurized to ensure its preservation (heating at 78 ° C for a few minutes).
  • Bottling and capping are done hot.
  • The juice thus conditioned will be preserved without problem 2 to 3 years. To be enjoyed without moderation!
