Quick and easy tutorial on how to make Homemade Cherry Juice with a steam juicer. We love this healthy cherry juice recipe, made from real cherries, and use it all winter long. Plus, it’s a great way to use up the excess harvest!
- Lots of cherries, at least 1 gallon
- Steam juicer
- Wash and sort your cherries, no need to pit or remove stems. I do like to pick out the ones that are rotten and any leaves that might get mixed in.
- Get the steam juicer washed and set up according to instructions. Fill the hopper with your cherries. If you are using more than one type, mix them as you add them to get a more consistent juice flavor.
- Let them steam for an hour, making sure the bottom of the steamer doesn’t run out of water. The hopper full of cherries produces about four quarts of juice. If you have more cherries to do, throw out (compost or feed it to your chickens) the steamed cherries before doing your next batch.
- Process the juice in a hot water bath for 15 minutes (for quarts) for us high elevations and 10 minutes for you low-lyers.
- Sugar can be added to the juice to make it sweeter; just do that to taste.
- I used the juice for jelly and cherry syrup! Recipes to come.
- This juice is so good with lemon-lime pop (just when we are splurging)
