🟠 Orange Extract

Orange Extract

🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
2 oz 5-6 weeks

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🟠 1 large navel orange
  • 🍶 2 oz vodka

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 2-fl. oz glass bottle

📝 Instructions

Step 1

Peel thin strips of zest from 1/2 of your navel orange.

Step 2

Place zest into your 2-fl. oz glass bottle.

Step 3

Add vodka, filling up to the neck of the bottle.

Step 4

Every few days, tilt your bottle upside down to gently mix the liquid inside.

Step 5

After 5-6 weeks, you have extract! (I think with citrus peels the acid (and alcohol bath), it’s probably safe to leave the peels inside the bottle like a vanilla bean for re-fill purposes. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, take it out!)
