Recipe : How to Make Orange Extract

Ingredients

  • • 4 organic oranges (if possible) otherwise, 4 large oranges (bright colors make the extract prettier) *
  • • 1 cup vodka

Instructions


  • Wash the oranges and pat dry.

  • Using a citrus twist peeler, make strips of the orange without getting any of the white pith. I use a bartender’s tool called a citrus twist peeler; it is not the same as a zester.

  • Place the orange strips into a pretty glass jar and cover with vodka. Shake and let this sit for 4-6 weeks in a dark cabinet. If you put it in the window, the pretty orange color of the strips will begin to fade. You can smell and tell if the extract is ready.

  • After about 3-4 months, I strain out the orange "twists." If they remain in the mixture too long, it can become bitter.
