Cooking Fail: The Worst Way to Make Homemade Juice

Homemade Apple Juice Fail | leave it to JoyI wanted to make homemade juice. I had been given some apples from my parent’s apple tree and I didn’t know what to do with them – there was so many!! That said, I don’t have a juicer. But the internet has information on everything, so I started to look for alternative methods. And wouldn’t you know it, I found one!

Basically, you make a puree. Filter out all the pulp with either a coffee filter or cheese cloth and voilà! JUICE!

Too bad I didn’t think of it until nothing had happened for an hour or so. 😦 It also didn’t mention that it would take FOREVER to let gravity pull the juice through. And it didn’t mention that 12 cups of apple puree would make 4 cups of juice. It’s SO not even worth the 2 days I let it drip… that’s right. 2 days! For MOMENTS of juice enjoyment.

Moral of the story – buy a juicer or don’t make juice.
