Substituting packaged juice for freshly-squeezed juice in recipes

Regarding this recipe, https://www.pinkladyapples.co.uk/in-the-kitchen/desserts/pink-lady-apple-and-elderflower-jellies, how much juice would 4 - 6 apples produce?  I don't have a juicer so I'll be using bought apple juice.

 

The recipe says about a pint of juice. 

 

  1. Using a fruit juicer, juice the apples into a jug (you should get approximately a pint of juice) and stir through the lemon juice. Alternatively, if you’re short on time, you can use Pink Lady® apple juice.

🙄 I don't know how I missed it.  Thanks.

Happens to all of us now and then!   🙂

But my first reaction was that juicing fresh apples yields a whole hella different flavor than store juice unless you have a fresh press source which some framers markets and such provide.

It'll be from the supermarket, but when you consider there's lemon juice (it'll be freshly squeezed 😇), mint leaves and elderflower, I'm not sure I'd miss the fresh apple juice flavour.
