  • Yield: 5 gallons


  • 2–3 pounds crabapples (enough to make 16 –32 ounces of juice)
  • 5 gallons sweet cider
How to Make It
  1. Rinse and sort the crabapples, then process them in your juicer. Alternatively, purée the crabapples in manageable batches in a blender or food processor, then pour the pulp into a sieve lined with a clean dishcloth or glass cloth and set over a large bowl. Allow the juice to drain through, then gather the corners of the cloth and carefully twist and squeeze, extracting as much juice as possible.
  2. Combine the crabapple juice and sweet cider in a 6-gallon pail or carboy and mix well. Keep refrigerated.
