Apple Juice

The old green pippin is giving more apples every year. This year I've made good apple sauce, especially fine to cook with, and incredible apple juice.

The recipe is all the pippins that fall off the tree without too many blemishes and before the squirrels get them, plus an equal amount of Fujis from the farmer's market guy who sells me all I can carry home in my bike pack for $5.

That's around 20 pounds of apples which makes maybe a gallon or a little more. You've never tasted apple juice this good. It'll last maybe ten days in the fridge. Days two through eight are the best, and then it starts to ferment. The alcohol it produces tastes so bad you can't swallow it, so forget that idea.
