How to Store Fresh-Squeezed Juice From Apples

Updated April 17, 2017

Apples come in hundreds of varieties, with tastes ranging from almost painfully sweet to nearly inedibly sour or bitter. When you make your own apple juice, you can use this broad variety of tastes to your advantage. If you have a particular favourite apple, you can make your juice from that variety alone. If you are feeling creative, however, you can mix several kinds of apples to come up with the perfect juice blend to suit your taste. When you have created your perfect juice, store it properly to enjoy it for as long as possible.

Pour your apple juice into an airtight container.

Place the lid on the container and seal it tightly.

Put the sealed container of apple juice in the refrigerator. Remove it for as brief a time as possible when you want to pour yourself a glass. The cooler you keep the juice, the longer it stays good--so do not leave the container on the counter. With the right storage, you can keep your fresh apple juice in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days.

Pour your apple juice into airtight containers, leaving 1/2 inch of room at the top of each one. Using multiple small containers rather than one larger one will give you flexibility to thaw smaller quantities of the juice at a time rather than all of it.

Place the lids on the containers and seal them tightly.

Put the sealed containers of apple juice into your freezer. You can keep apple juice frozen for 8 to 12 months.
