There are several different ways to make peach juice, but all involve somehow liquefying the peach. Depending on one's preferences, one may alter this basic peach substance with various additional juices or liquids, including water. Some people claim that making peach juice must be done in a certain way, but as anyone who has eaten a ripe peach knows, peaches are full of juice that is easy to extract and enjoy in its natural state. Even so, peach juice is sometimes considered more drinkable when cut down with water and strained through a fine sieve.

The first step to making peach juice is obtaining peaches. There are many different types of peaches that can be suitable, but one must use peaches that are ripe enough that they are slightly soft and full of flavor. Using unripe peaches will yield undesirable juice. Likewise, using previously frozen peaches is not recommended. Fresh, ripe fruit is best for this type of project although the resulting juice can easily be frozen.

Once one has a sufficient number of peaches to make juice, one must decide how to juice them. Many people use a blender, but using a juicer designed for vegetables and solid fruits can be effective as well. It is not a good idea to attempt to juice a peach using a citrus juicer or by mashing the peaches by hand, although in a pinch these strategies can be used to extract a small amount of juice from peaches. The most effective way to juice peaches is almost certainly by machine, as this will minimize waste.

Before putting peaches in the blender or juicer, the fruit must be properly prepared. If one will be straining the blended juice, there is no need to peel the peaches beforehand. On the other hand, if one is making a thicker juice, peeling the peaches is recommended. This is easily accomplished by first boiling the peaches until the skin loosens, but it is also possible to peel peaches using a peeler. Removing the peach pits is also very important before placing the fruit in the blender or juicer, as these hard objects can ruin either machine.

The finished juice product can be made according to a variety of recipes. Many people water down peach juice, and the amount of water desired depends on individual tastes. Replacing the water with seltzer can yield delectable fizzy juices, although these border on becoming sodas. Mixed peach juices are also a possibility, and some people include other fruit like blueberries and cranberries. Even though peach juice is highly sweet already, if it is combined with a naturally tart juice like cranberries, additional sugar may be needed.

I don't know why, but this article reminds me so much of the movie James and the Giant Peach. Does anyone remember that? In my opinion, the most memorable part is when they sing a song about eating the (flying) peach, while coincidentally, eating the inside of a peach. It's a lighthearted and very fun sequence.

On another note, this is a great article. Although I do wonder - is peach juice sold in stores?

@Euroxati - While I haven't, the article is definitely convincing me to do so. I have a juicer at home, and it's amazing how much of a variety there is when it comes to juicing things. As an example, instead of buying my own orange juice, I usually juice my own oranges, and drink it that way.

However, I would say that one downside to having a juicer is that it can get pretty messy at times. You have to constantly clean it out, and most of all, you need to know how to operate it. Failure to do these things can have some long term consequences. However, once you have the basics down, it's a cinch.

Has anyone here tried peach juice, and if so, how much did you enjoy it?
