If you have a juicer, then you can skip this post but if not, please read on.

This is the easiest method to obtain fruit juice without the need for seeding or peeling the fruit and does not require any special equipment.  This is how I quickly process juice for jelly, beverages, or freeze drying during the busy summer season.

STEP 1 - WASH FRUIT: Wash the fruit thoroughly.

STEP 2 - CUT FRUIT IF NEEDED: For fruit with a large seeds, like peaches, you will need to cut the fruit into chunks so it will soften and cook down.  

For most fruit, you can simply cut in half or leave whole depending on the size of the fruit.  If you have small fruit like ground cherries, blueberries, mulberries, blackberries, etc. you do not need to cut into smaller size.
At this point you have 2 options:

#1 You can either place fruit in a food processor before cooking
#2 You can use an immersion blender after cooking

STEP 4 - COOK FRUIT: Place fruit (whole, chopped, or pureed) in a large pot and cover with enough water to keep fruit from sticking to pan.  I usually add enough water to cover 1/2 to 3/4 of the fruit but there is no magic number here.

Cook on medium-high heat until the fruit becomes soft.  If you are using an immersion blender, not is the time to get the fruit blended.  If you pre-blended, then you are good to go.  

STEP 5 - STRAIN FRUIT: Once the fruit has become really soft and "smushy",  pour it into a strainer.  Using a spoon, press fruit through sieve. 

STEP 6 - STRAIN THROUGH CLOTH FOR CLEAR JUICE: Depending on the size of the fruit, there may still be seeds and there will also be pulp.  You can stop at this point but if you want juice only, you still have one step to go.

This is where cheesecloth or flour sack towel comes into play.  Place a the clean cloth on the sieve/strainer.

Pour the juice (seeds and pulp) that just went through the strainer into the flour sack or jelly bag.

You will be left with a beautiful clear juice.

By using these methods, you can efficiently extract fruit juice without the hassle of seeding or peeling each fruit individually. 

If you have made it this far, I have several videos on Tiktok, Youtube, Instagram, and Facebook showing how to make various jellies and the process I use to extract the juice.
