Recipe by: sxsboy
Source: My observation
Approximately 60 lbs. of baseball sized Jonagold apples produced 5 1/2 gallons of juice. I also ground them using the Maximizer fruit grinder.
Active Time
45 minutes
Yields
5.5 gallons

Ingredients:

  • Approximately 12 five-lb. bags of Jonagold apples, from the farmer's market

Directions:

  1. 1. Grind the apples in the Maximizer apple grinder.
  2. 2. Dump ground apples into fruit press basket lined with mesh bag.
  3. 3. Add lemon juice or vin-acid (acid blend) to the juice receptacle before you start squeezing the juice. Apple juice alone turns an unappealing brownish color almost immediately otherwise. One lemon per gallon of juice should be sufficient and gives the juice a pleasant taste. Without the acid the juice turns brown BUT it doesn't affect the flavor. It just looks like swamp water.
  4. 4. Use fruit press to press juice from the apples.

When the juice really starts to flow it helps to have the "Harvest Bounty Apple Cider Press" tilted forward slightly (towards the spout). My press started to over-flow in the back.
